Yeah...the more I thought about being stuck for nearly 4 whole days in contemplative silence the more I realized my husband would be bringing me home in a straitjacket. I all ready have too much silence and time to contemplate as it is. My husband agrees it is likely not the best scenario for me right now. I have my own snow piles and grey skies outside the windows to stare at, there is no percentage in driving 5 hours to spend 4 days staring at the monastery's snow piles and grey skies. I want to protect my mental health...what is left of it.

I gave up on my mental health long ago.
What was left of it went in the fall
semester, and was nowhere to be seen at
at convocation, just ask my handlers;
when they let me out on Monday, they
saw no sign of it either. :D

(Penny will shaker her head at me)
My friend Miki and I where quoting
Monty Python yesterday:
Thou shalt cut down the mightiest
tree in the forest with...
A Herring!
Ni! Ni! :)

Hope you and the Lord have a good time
while the man is away! :)

Alas poor Monty...I knew him well......

My prayers have been that Dell is able to travel with someone else going to the retreat....even if he takes the car....you are often on a retreat at home, as you have laid out, and there are so many other considerations. Why not invite one of your MJ friends to come to Kindersley for a two day visit?

Yeah, I wish I could. The non-clergy friends work weekdays and the clergy friends will all be at retreat with Dell. There are no other local clergy here for him to ride with. The nearest locals are 3 hours away and it would be way out of his way to connect with them. We are very isolated out here.
