Recharging My Batteries
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.
Its time to retreat, so I can advance. Time to pull away so I can come back fully engaged. Time to pause, reflect, and celebrate what has been. So I am off for my annual retreat, off to a rudimentary cabin by a beautiful lake, with good long time friends. We will play a lot, walk in nature (I’ll keep track of my miles) and get a zoology lesson or two. I’ll ponder the old bones series. Some sketching and such may happen. We may see an otter, and surely we will see ducks and deer. A jig saw puzzle will be solved. Books will be read, and discussed. We will prepare beautiful simple meals. Laughter and silence will each have their turn.
See you next week.
