it has been a hard, hard week!
Well, in point of fact, since I took myself and all the assorted actual and potential transitions of my life away with me, I did work quite hard, and have rarely journalled with such intensity.
As predicted, I drank in heaps of wisdom and insight from our retreat conductor, and read a seriously wonderful book, about which I'll try to blog shortly.
I also spent a long time wandering along cliff tops, sat in the sun listening to waves and sky-larks, to Dunstable and U2 , enjoyed some excellent supper-time conversations (encouraged by equally excellent wine) and generally wondered at the beauty of it all.
Huge thanks are due to A, who welcomed us all to her home with grace and generosity, to D for providing the sort of inspiration you can never have too much of, and to my other companions, who might well be on the way to becoming friends.
But mostly (if it doesn't sound too pi) to God for such a wonderful place.
