Nimrod Hall Travel Log
On a usual day at Nimrod, another writer and I start with a walk. Mist shrouding the mountains is typical.
As we walk, chatting about changes over the past year, writing, weather, nature–whatever–the sun burns off the mist.
We can enjoy the glory of day lilies and spider webs new each morning.
We are usually back by 8:00, grab a mug of coffee, and join other writers and guests waiting for the breakfast bell.
By 9:00 or a little after, I’m back in Square House. From then till 1:30 lunch is quiet time, when all good little writers are pounding out pages of prose and poetry–or at least not disturbing others!
UPDATE: Nimrod Hall, established in 1783, has been providing summer respite from everyday stress since 1906. It has been operating as an artist and writer colony for over 25 years. The Nimrod Hall Summer Arts Program is a non-competitive, inspirational environment for artists to create without the distractions of everyday life. The 2015 Writers’ Workshop writers-in-residence are Sheri Reynolds, Cathryn Hankla, and Charlotte G. Morgan.
