My Retreat is over and, as usual, it was a time of renewal. For me, the days were not as productive as I would have hoped. My aching neck controlled my activities. I'm going to a physical therapist about that this week. Anyway, someone had brought a book about work by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, 1868-1928. His style was similar to Frank Lloyd Wright's. You might check it out at www.crmsociety.com. Mackintosh was a Scottish architect, designer and watercolourist. The above piece was my copy of one of his botanical drawings.
Yes, the ATC's were well received and I, in turn, received a variety of keepsakes, from bookmarks to a small hand made book, pens, and origami. The final treat is to see the wall on the last morning where people post the work they have created over the time at Santa Sabina. Maybe I'll post a couple of pictures after I download them.
