The Hills are Alive!


Hello from Colorado! Land of mountains, trees, and wildlife.
My dear friend Lori and I are attending the Colorado Christian Writers' Conference this week. We arrived two days early to get acclimated to the altitude and the excitement level. Tuesday we drove into Rocky Mountain National Park and took pictures. What fun!
We enjoyed a beautiful drive and stopped often to tromp through the rocks for the perfect photos. Upon arriving back at lodging, we discovered a hitchhiker - the insect kind. There's nothing like "Tick Checks" to bond people together for life. (No picture available)
We wrote almost 5000 words in the past 24 hours. Then as conferees began arriving, we mingled with old friends and greeted newcomers.
The evening opening session included worship with Tom Ewing and a message from Sandy Cathcart about writing God's answer. Bonnie Calhoun blessed our socks off with the well-known song, His Eye is on the Sparrow. What an amazing way to get focused on why we write!

Cool! Casey, I didn't realize until I was over at Lori P.'s blog that your real-life friend Lori was also my real-life friend Lori! ... I pray that you two have had an incredible time. God bless you both!

I'm glad you were so richly blessed at the conference! Sounds like a double blessing just to be in Colorado. =)

You and Lori look so much alike. Are you sisters? :) Glad you enjoyed the conference and had a positive experience.

You live in the land I drool over! I love Colorado. Why oh why didn't God let me live there? Heavy sigh...I DO love coffee though, I used to write coffee articles for our local newspaper. So I guess we are java gals, heh?
