We had an amazing Writers’ Community of York Region meeting. After three years at the helm, I’m stepping aside to become Past President of WCYR. Elaine, our Vice-President, surprised me with a lovely farewell from my colleagues. The members followed with a standing ovation. Wow! Being the sentimental woman that I am, I got all emotional. I did manage to make a decent thank you speech, but as I opened the gift certificates for Blue Heron Books, the LCBO and Hungry Brew Hops, the new brew pub in Newmarket, I teared up again. All incredibly thoughtful gifts that I’ll be happy to put to good use. I am so grateful to be acknowledged for doing something that I loved.
Our amazing presenters – Gwynn Sheltema and Ruth E. Walker – led us through some writing exercises. As fun as that was, the events of the day seems to have burned up my creativity. I’m running on empty. So here, instead of something totally original, is a selection of graphics culled from the web. Click on the arrows to view.
