There’s nothing like going on retreat, and that’s what I’ll be doing this coming week. I expect to do a lot of walking, writing, reading, drawing, and contemplating. It will be a quiet time. A time to get up early to watch the sun rise or to sleep late because I couldn’t put that book down last night until I’d finished it. It will be a time for listening to the ocean as it tosses itself against the shore and watching migrating water fowl make their way south. I’ll look for messages washed up on the beach that might send me off in new directions, as my feet relax into the sand and the sun bathes me in its intensity.
For the next week things will probably be silent on this end. I hope you have a pleasant week and will enjoy the last days of summer.
