Here is the view from Nancy’s tiny rented cottage, which served as her personal retreat for a day or so this week – a solo endeavor, along with her dog.
Such retreats are a great occasion to gather thoughts, reassess priorities, meditate, and so much more.
For a few words about retreats and the human condition, following is from that great retreat taker, Mr Henry David Thoreau:
“I have a great deal of company in my house; especially in the morning, when nobody calls.”
“I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”
“Most of the luxuries and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.”
