Introducing my Emerald Mountain Sanctuary blog

Hello to all my Beauty Along the Road readers!

I would like to introduce you to a second blog which I started on my business website, Emerald Mountain Sanctuary.

My husband and I recently completed the construction of a small retreat and conference center in the mountains of Virginia, USA, and hosted our first event, the annual planning meeting of an internationally active organization. The group felt nourished by daily walks in the woods and across the fields, which infused fresh creative energies into their indoor work.

My latest blog post there was inspired by an ancient elm tree I befriended while I spent a week at the Kripalu Institute in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts this fall.

Take a look and let me know what you think. Better yet, if you are in the area, come and visit!
