Writing has brought me back to Martha’s Vineyard. Yes, I arrived during a storm once more. This isn’t a bad thing, though. Possibly the warmth of food and friendship is more intensely cherished when the wind is howling and the rain flooding the walkways.
There are ten writers here, one house manager, and the Residency’s director. It’s a bit larger group than last time, and possibly more diverse. I like that!
On my sister blog, the one where I take you along with me as I seek writing inspiration, I’ll discuss the challenges of gathering my thoughts in a group environment, but here, I want to just share a bit of the travel highlights.
The residency is at Noepe Center for Literary Arts, previously Point Way Inn. Beautifully decorated and conveniently located to allow access to most things in Edgartown by foot or bicycle, it is on the corner of Main Street and Pease’s Point Way.
Charming, quaint, full of local color, I adore the atmosphere. Signs appear to be hand-painted and particular to the New England area.
Clouds only enhance the moodiness of the island, setting the stage for dark or stormy scenes.
What a wonderful place for a writers’ retreat! We’ve been there once; beautiful place.
Hi Dianna! It is idyllic. Miss you and will catch up when this travelling segment has commenced–which will be all too soon I’m afraid. Thanks for stopping by.
Have fun. One a.m. here after a fun day and harrowing evening. Gotta try to get to sleep.
No more hail storms, I hope? You’ll be worn out by the time we all get to Essoyes.
That’s ok. I’m jealous of me too. *wink* It’s really lovely here.
Great architecture – plus stormy, cloudy, water. Perfect for writing!
Yes it was and am actually replying to you from another dreamy spot. Writing is taking us places not only in our minds, but physically as well.
You’re living the life. I just adore your photos. I find them so welcoming. 🙂
Thank you, Monica.
