(not exactly) silent

Retreats at the zen center are always practiced in silence.

This time the opening instruction given was to not only keep quiet, but to use less words inside of our heads, too.

Kind of like when you walk down a hallway and hear a conversation in another room, and you stop or slow down and strain to hear a few words...? Well, when that happens inside your head, keep going. The instruction is: Don't Listen.

So this is all ya' get today outta me word-wise today (already too much!) and then a Snapshot On Saturday tomorrow. Sunday evening I shall return. Full of words,I am sure.

PS...Margaret in Ontario, I adore you. Thank you thank you. More on that soon ;-)
