Earlier this year I put together a list of goals and experiences that I would like to make time for this year to nourish myself creatively. One of the bullet points on my list was reading a dozen new books.
We are halfway through the year, and I am halfway through my list! Read on for my reading list highlights.
As I write this blog from the spacious porch of the HARBOR HILL HOUSE in Bayfield, Wisconsin the morning sun is turning Lake Superior into bed of shimmering diamonds.
The Madeline Island Ferry is making it’s morning crossing over to Madeline Island, and the air around me is scented with the sweet smell of the flowers hanging heavy in their baskets.
I feel lucky to be in this place, enjoying a cup of coffee with the splendor of nature surrounding me.
21 green miles north west of Bayfield, along the gently curving hills of Highway 13, is the small community of Cornucopia, Wisconsin. Historically a fishing village, this gem along the South Shore of sparkling Lake Superior is home to one of my favorite places to find inspiration during my stays in Bayfield – HESTEKIN POTTERY.
The ever-enchanting city of ANTIGUA Guatemala has my heart.
When I have chance to go, I stay at one of Antigua’s finest places to stay - the Meson Panza Verde Hotel. Ideally located on the quiet end of Antigua’s famous Fifth Avenue. The iconic entrance is always adorned with fresh flowers, and stepping inside here feels just like coming home.
Stepping into old-town Shangri-La, Tibet is like stepping into a fairy tale.
As I mentioned in my last blog, Shangri-La (formerly known as Gyalthang or Zhongdian in Chinese) is a 1,300-year-old Tibetan community, which was selected by the Chinese government in 2001 as the location of the mythical Shangri-La from James Hilton’s novel Lost Horizon. I couldn’t wait to see this sanctuary above the clouds.
