Birthing the Dream

Sunset from the Tigeen

If you're a regular reader you'll remember this recent post.

And when you do a start-up, you never know, do you? Well I was beside myself today when I got my first booking for the Tigeen: An American writer-in-residence who wants to spend 2 days in my wee cabin and tour the Avalon before heading off to her summer position about 400K from here.

I am so chuffed at how my friends have gathered around with suggestions, promotions and downright support and accolades about the Tigeen to anyone who will listen to them. For instance, tonight the author sister of a good friend is promoting it in a broadcast to her connections.

Now, I'm holding my horses, this may be the only booking. But hell, isn't it so very lovely when this dream, after such a long incubation, has become so very much ALIVE?

  1. Let's hope that this will be the first of many bookings as word will get out and the Tigeen's comforts become widely known. Good luck!

    Good luck!

  4. Wonderful! Have you considered advertising it as a spiritual retreat as well? As a Buddhist I'm always looking for places to get away to do one practice or another. There is a fair sized Shambhala community in St. John's that would probably jump at the possibility.

    Thank you for your good wishes and I'm afraid it wouldn't suit you at all, our weather is quite wretched, cold and foggy, though the wee wood stove would be excellent to make your chai :)

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
