It’s good to be home, but it was so wonderful to be away last week. I left Wednesday for a writing retreat, and came back Monday feeling physically tired, but emotionally and spiritually refreshed. (Has anyone else experienced those two simultaneously?) I am still riding high from that blessed time but am fully immersed in home life again, heavily into the logistics of all that we have on the check-list before school starts later this month. Life is such a wonderful mix of tug and release, of fullness and emptiness. We keep moving ahead by embracing all of it.
Take a peek as I relive my recent retreat through my Wednesday post on Peace Garden Writer (the post will appear just after midnight CST, August 4). I’d love to hear about your retreats, vacations or dreams of any to come.
