That a couple of years ago, I would have blogged all sorts of events from the last couple of days. I mean, a lot has gone on in my life. I finished a great silent retreat where the subject material was on the “mystics.” I am not sure if I enjoyed the presented material most or simply the time and permission to be silent; to take a blanket out onto the beautiful grounds and lie out there under a tree looking up at the sky through a canopy of leaves; to lie there and carry on a quiet conversation with God and to be able to sense things that I needed to hear. The days included a session talking with a spiritual director that also clarified some things for me. And the hospitality in the place was great.
Then the evening with Dave and Annette and a wonderfully excited Kieran at the Cirque de Soleil. What fun. What magic!
Then introduced Jordon and Wendy to the Konga Cafe. On Ave. H and 23rd. Doesn’t look like much but the food and hospitality there is great. Food with a Carribean flavor.
And today, met another friend for lunch. Good talking times. Then home to celebrate a significant birthday with another friend.
So there has a been a lot that could have been blogged in great detail. It seems that these days I have been doing less writing and more doing things with people. Seems that if I am busy being with friends then there is maybe more things to say but less time to talk about it. So, I guess I will spend the time doing and being and enjoying. Maybe deep thoughts will emerge at some point but for now, I am enjoying friends, family and the warm summer weather.
Tomorrow after church I will head up to the lake with two daughters and two grandsons. We are tenting and going to celebrate Canada Day together at the lake.
