Rain, thunder, lightening, a cold winter’s night with the sound of frogs, wonderful. The Ojai Retreat in the Ojai valley is a delightful rest from the stress and noise of the world. Ms Cook prepares for her book signing mid January 2017, after the famous swiss breakfast in the morning and an exploration of local thrift stores and lunch at Osteria Monte Grappa. Our thanks go to Ulrich Brugger the Director of the The Ojai Retreat for a his care of the soul.
