Leaving the world behind...

...literally. I am leaving in the morning to go on retreat. I will be spending eight days in directed retreat silence in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I am excited and a bit nervous. You never know what God has in store for you. Though as much as I like to talk, the silence is very liberating. I know I will treasure the time each day spent with a spiritual director and at Mass. The eight days will be based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

I will be praying for all of you. I hope you will do the same for me. I have several ideas for tutorials when I get back. Below is one of the vistas I will enjoy while in Colorado at the Sacred Heart Retreat House.

God Bless!


  1. I will miss you and pray for you while you are gone.

  2. I know it will be a wonderful blessed time. Take care and have a safe trip. FWIW- I attended convent schools and at one time went to a convent school of cloistered nuns who took a vow of silence. The only time the spoke was when they were teaching us. It was quite amazing to be in that environment. I wish you great serenity.

  3. Have you had enough silence???? Aren't you ready to talk???? Come back, come back! :)))

    Was it just wonderful??!! :)

  4. Thanks guys. It was great. Back to life while trying to bring some of the silence with me.
