tuesday morn

good morn everyone    i haven't been here awhile    there's not much to tell   i haven't been anywhere, except a workshop, or done anything, except finally a hike in the midst of this cold winter    last week i spent the whole week, except thursday, either doing preparations for a workshop or attending it over the weekend    i felt like i was back to full time work again in lieu of retirement   but it's over for now, at least until the next workshop   it was a good workshop on the idea of We Way, collective wisdom of the whole   enlightening and uplifting   it was well worth the time...on thursday i took the day off and finally got a hike in    i haven't hiked in months and have been aching to go    the trail wasn't as bad as i thought it would be   i imagined it being totally muddy, slippin' & slidin' away    however, it was pretty solid with a few patches of snow, a couple puddles, and little mud    i didn't hike long for i'm way out of shape but enjoyed it immensely as i burned my lungs to the fresh air    i did sit with my eyes closed for about a half hour enjoying the warm of the sun on my face   Heaven, the quiet solitude among nature    once the hike was over, i came home and took a nap   it sure did relieve the stress for the week, but i was back at it on friday    so today, i'm back on the mountainside for another hike    i get to have a couple days off before returning to more meetings and volunteer work ...i did start a new class at church in preparation to become a spiritual counselor there   the class is great, but i wonder sometimes, do i really desire to be a spiritual counselor    all in time i will know    maybe it will be different than all this volunteering   i certainly hope so....

Sounds like your just having a little trouble sorting things out, but I think you're going about it the right way...trying things and seeing how it all fits. The little retreats into the mountains have to be a good idea; they let you get some peace of mind in the process. Good luck, I'm sure you'll get everything in order.

   I almost envy you your mountains. To sit in the sunshine, even if it is cold, sounds wonderful. Good luck with your training. Oh, by the way, go Bears!
