Cornwall was wonderful
thank you for asking.
Hattie Gandhi remains the perfect person with whom to travel and our hosts at Tregithy were their usual hospitable selves. Even the weather took a turn for the better, so that we could (and did) sit beside sparkling waves, watching the dogs swim for sticks and listening to the cry of the sea-birds.
We walked a fraction of the coastal path and talked about dreams and plans, about life and relationships and about God. And it was very good.
One thing, though. I think I'd question the wisdom of taking 3 days of leave and then returning for the inside of a week before a further break - rejoining is proving harder than usual and I'm sure that's because it is overlapping with the eve-of-holiday wind-down feeling... Trying to plan tomorrow's OpenHouse and some creative Evening Worship - both tasks I really enjoy as a rule but closely akin to pulling teeth today.
Still, at least thinking about Transfiguration should allow me to recapture some of the holiday mood...Time apart to recognise God sounds rather a good idea to me.
