I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.

Today is another busy day as I prepare for the Blue Ridge Bookfest in Hendersonville on may 20, 21 and a class here at Writers Circle.
We welcome our guests to the studio with fresh coffee and hot tea, plus delicious breads or muffins. What is there about gathering around a table with food and drink that brings us closer in mind and spirit?
Paul Donovan, one of our instructors says there is a warmth and a casual feeling here that is not present in a sterile classroom atmosphere. That is what I had hoped for when I decided to hold classes in my home. Writers circle around our table and that is where the name of my studio came from - circle is used as a verb.
Look for us at the Blue Ridge Bookfest at Flat Rock Community College. I hope I will meet some of the readers of my blogs, and meet new writers and poets there. I have been coordinating our writers from my area with Bill Ramsey's team for rooms and transportation.
Members of NCWN West will hold a panel discussion on writing and publishing, Voices of Echoes Across the Blue Ridge, on Saturday, May 21 at 11:15 AM.
Look for us on your program. Bring your questions as we hope to have time for a Q and A at the end.
