Might have to figure out a way to create a calender on my blog. Til then, here’s an update with my tentative teaching / workshop schedule. Love to see you in my online classes or in person.
UC Riverside Extension
Freeing Your Creativity, Part I, Jan. 24 – March 6
Freeing Your Creativity, Part II, March 14 – April 24
Believe the six-week courses will run about $225.
Palm Springs Branch National League of American Pen Women
Scheduled to lead a couple of creativity workshops, Freeing Your Creativity and Collage / Visioning, for the NLAPW’s creativity conference, scheduled for May 19 and 20 at the Riviera Resort and Spa in Palm Springs.
Should have more Vancouver/Portland offerings this spring, also. More to come.
Picture-perfect day here today. Must get out to enjoy it. Hope you do, too.

Psst! Still time to enroll in my upcoming Freeing Your Creativity course, which is offered through UC Riverside Extension. It’s an online offering, which runs from June 28 through Aug. 6. We’ll use Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way” and Michael Gelb’s “How to Think Like Leonardo daVinci.” Lots of fun surprises along the way, too. Join me. Here’s how: Enrollment info.
Also, if you’re in the Vancouver or Portland area, I’ll lead a Plein Air writing course for Clark College Extension on Saturdays from Sept. 18 through Oct. 9. Links to follow for that one. Think it’s about $40 / student. We’ll talk, hike (not terribly rigorous, but plan on a couple of miles), write, nibble a bring-your-own lunch and talk some more. Hope you’ll join.

More garden weeding to tend today, but what a sun-drenched Friday. (And, who knew that a belly dance instructor could double as a drill sergeant? Or that shimmies — and shimmy overlays — could be so ouch inducing?)
Little grad school break, which, this week, has had me in domestic and gardening goddess mode. (Just call me goddess for short. I’ll probably even answer to it.)
But to the clip file: Couple of stories out in today’s Columbian. Weekend story about Fort Vancouver’s Brigade Encampment this weekend. And Life story about a Vancouver woman and her free table.
Sorry, it’s blogging lite lately. And will be, methinks.

God, I hope not. At least when it comes to the stuff falling from the sky. But a bottle pour is something else entirely (although I most love that nestled next to a beach campfire). Check out my story about touring Washington Columbia River Gorge wineries in today’s Weekend magazine for The Columbian.
Some worth-checking-out highlights:
Wind River Cellars, home to Minnie, the potbellied pig, Domaine Pouillon, a place atop a savannah that’s working to meld the environment with both food and wine and Cascade Cliffs Vineyard and Winery, a place sandwiched between breath-taking buttes and the Columbia River.
Enjoy the weekend, wherever your plans take you.
