I’m still working on my book at The Hambidge Center. Only nine more days left of my residency! You requested more photos, so I’m sharing them today.

Hambidge even has an anagama, or Japanese kiln, which they fire several times a year. (Apologies for the jacket hanging in front of it.)

That looks fabulous. I really need to try a retreat some year when I am not needed so much at home.

Thanks for sharing the photos. I’d love to be in one of those rocking chairs with you all, looks very peaceful (although I see Hambridge residents do tend to get crazy with clay.)

Lovely, Alexis. Nice to see the environment you’re surrounded with while you write your travel memoir.

This looks fabulous, Alexis. You’re making me think I really should explore getting accepted at a writer’s colony. Maybe a good goal for next year,

Come visit me sometime!

I love that you love where you are and find the essence of each (to you) to write about. I am to be at Hambidge this August, and as a returning Georgian with lots more to write about, hope to gain as much as you did there. My wife hopes there is no stray dogs there as I have been known to bring them home!
