Bye for Now

I’m going on a retreat tomorrow but am going to start withdrawing now, so I won’t be writing for a few days.

Let me tell you about my retreat. I’m so excited!!

I’m going to a retreat center on Palomar Mountain. Normally, people go there in groups of hundreds. I like to go alone.

In the past, I’ve gone to another center, but this will be my first time at this one. Because I’m a leader, I get the “pastor’s special,”…all meals included. I won’t be taking anything electronic with me. My car’s been acting up, so I’ll take my phone, but hopefully, I won’t turn it on.

I’m excited: me, God, bibles, paper, pens, thoughts, imagination, conversation…

all alone…

all one with God.

to your heart
there’s a moment created
for you to ask
for you to listen
for you to understand
for you to delve
and get to know me
if you want
