2018 Summer Vacation

I took some time off and drove to Whitefish Montana to spend a week at Dancing Spirit Ranch at an "Art of Presence" retreat hosted by Grammy Winner pianist Peter Kater. I had the most lovely time with a group of inspiring individuals. The food was vegan, so I could eat everything that was offered without fear of food allergies.

The landscape was inspiring. The music was astounding. The group was supportive.

Here are some photos of the week:
