Since I don’t have anything prolific to spout this lovely hump day, I thought I’d take a moment to simply say thank you to the Mermaids and all our friends. Writing can be a solitary effort, despite the plethora of social media. But once in a while, it’s wonderful to trek to a beautiful wooded retreat, nestled quietly on an edge of a lake and enjoy good food and laughter with other writer friends. It’s that extra pick me that is sometimes sorely needed. As I wallowed in a tempest of silly conversation, thoughtful reflection and giddy laughter, I realized the preciousness of those moments. At a time when we don’t know if a sick individual will put a bullet in our back as we head to work, it’s wonderful to take that time to smell the pages. And it’s best done with wonderful friends. Thank you Mermaids… and friends.

Masha, your presence is ALWAYS appreciated at our gatherings — for me, since I can’t always be in the DC area, it’s especially precious. Keep the fishy faith, friend! So glad you are safe.
Thank you, Masha! I am so glad we met at the WRW retreat 2.5 years ago! I truly appreciate your friendship.
Awww. Masha, you’re so sweet! Those writing-friend times are always so wonderful for me. You mermaids always help to light a much-needed fire under my arse when I need it. 🙂
Sometimes it’s nice to know where are in the same boat, but we don’t have to row alone.
Ah, Masha-Mermaid – sooo nice! I loved seeing you last week! Writing is a solitary endeavor but wonderful friends like you help me get through it. Big smoochies! 😉
Thank you to you, Masha. I’m so very happy and honored to call you friend. And you know how much I love reading your writings…even if it’s just a simple thank you. It’s you. 🙂
