|Gretchen Bernabei and Maureen Ucles|
Today started out completely stormy and wet. I trudged through some serious Houston rainy day traffic. I left my house an ungodly hour just to arrive on time. I wanted to be prepared to receive all the many blessings that Gretchen would bestow upon our group. Today, as I shut down my computer and got ready for my trek home, I feel fortunate to have spent the day with Gretchen and my friends. I feel refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated(pitchfork!). We learned together, laughed together and shared the gift that I love(pitchfork!). We shared the many gifts that writing and conversation will inspire. Great day, great moments, totally episodic (pitchfork!)!
