One of the writing “devices” Carol has encouraged us to use is an acrostic using a phrase or name or title to get us started. So at our summer meeting I used the simple phrase “GETTING HERE” because we are all busy women and it does take some effort and planning to make it to our semi-annual reunions. Here is what I wrote:
Going to our retreat again
Every six months or so.
The longing to be with my sol sisters — the anticipation of quiet moments,
Interspersed with lively conversations and
Never a dull moment —
Getting my “fix” for rejuvenation.
Happiness in such a unique group,
Each of us with our stories and memories,
Renewing our bonds and
Energized with our common hope…
until next time.
