Got this FABULOUS bracelet at Revolution on Sunday after I stopped in White River Junction on the way back from Barre, VT where I delivered the keynote of the VT LP Convention. Normally, I’m one of those drivers that just likes to get where I’m going, but I am trying to listen better to the voice in my head when it suggests indulgences like side-quests.
Before I got canceled from the NH Writer’s Project, I organized several NH Literary Festivals across the state. One of these was held in WRJ, even though it is technically in VT. I had to go to bat for holding the festival there, and since then, WRJ has held a special place in my heart.
I was delighted to see the tiny coffeehouse, Tuckerbox, has grown into a thriving, huuuuge restaurant. Even happier to learn Kim Souza, owner of Revolution, is now serving as selectman. Glad I listened to the voice reminding me it is actually both the destination and the journey that matter, and that trying to achieve balance in all things leads to happiness and success! (And beautiful bracelets!)
