My time at Baldwin was soul-healing. What a gift it was to sit among the trees, listening to the songs of robins and goldfinches and sparrows. To let time pass by without worrying about to-do lists. During my week, I found my way back to my YA novel. I worked on edits and found shapes in the clouds and meandered barefoot in the grass. I will forever cherish my time as a Baldwin Fellow. So much gratitude to Jacqueline Woodson and the BFTA board of directors for creating a slice of heaven tucked away in the trees.
