We held our first of two Bending Genres Retreats at Cedar Valley in West Bend, Wisconsin on July 18- 24. Meg Tuite and I were joined by Dr. Bob, Kellie, Joe, Michael, John, Bill, Jennifer, Martha and Al. We had so many moments of inspiration, including flash floods, and thunderstorms, incredible writing, a new coffee machine, and much more. Thanks to everyone at CV and all of our writers for making the week so memorable.
My all new musical playlist is published at Large Hearted boy, thanks editor David Gutkowski: http://www.largeheartedboy.com/blog/archive/2022/07/robert_vaughans.html

And, today, ASKEW is mentioned on Darrell Laurant’s generous column, Snowflakes in a Blizzard: https://snowflakesarise.wordpress.com/2022/07/26/askew/
In three weeks, August 21- 26, we will be hosting our second Bending Genres Retreat at Ojai Retreat Center in California. SO EXCITED!
Hope your summer is jamming. Here are some Cedar Valley images:
