Sweet, Sweet Silence

I shared the silence with this man as
we spent the past week at the Abbey of Gethsemani - Kentucky.
 Near perfect weather,
beautiful scenery,
simple and healthy meals,
 trails to walk,
 hills to climb,
books to read and quiet places to read them,

Prayers and the Psalms.
Solitude and Silence.
Sweet, sweet silence.


  1. What an interesting cross thing! Love it.

  2. Oh, your retreat experience sounds--and looks--wonderful. I see we both like Thomas Merton.

    Wishing you a beautiful day...
