Reading and discussing Writing Away, at the beautiful Carl Hayden Visitor Center at Glen Canyon Dam, Hwy 89


This was the moment I longed for every day. Settling at a heavy inn-table, thawing and tingling, with wine, bread, and cheese handy and my papers, books and diary all laid out; writing up the day’s doing, hunting for words in the dictionary, drawing, struggling with verses, or merely subsiding in a vacuous and contented trance while the snow thawed off my boots.” –Patrick Leigh Fermor
