I am in a small mountain town three hours from LA, at a gorgeous retreat center called Calliote Canyon.

There is no cell phone connection and spotty internet connection.  I’m sitting cross-legged on the floor in a circle of about 35 other women.  They are influential writers, thinkers, and entrepreneurs.  I’m honored to be here.

We’ve been sharing about motherhood and identity, and defining our goals.  We’ve talked about boundaries and balance and giving back. 

Most of all, we’ve been talking about writing.

It’s been hugely inspiring.  I’ve made a lot of discoveries, and I’m developing my “tribe”. 
(It’s a long story).

I’m having one of those moments where I know that I am right where I am supposed to be.  And I’m happy to be here.
