264: At-home retreat

Still water

True silence really means going deep within yourself to that place where nothing is happening, where you transcend time and space.  You go into a brand new dimension of nothingness.  That’s where all the power is.  That’s your real home.  That’s where you really belong, in deep Silence where there is no good or bad, no one trying to achieve anything.  Just being, pure being… Silence is the ultimate reality.

~Robert Adams

Barn Window I

I have decided I need a little break from the blogosphere.  This is day 264 of my outdoor and blogging commitments, there are some things going on that I don’t want to write about just yet, and I could use a little retreat.  To meet my commitment to blog, I have scheduled a couple of posts.  To meet my outdoor commitment, I’ll be spending a lot of time outside, communing with Nature.

Barn Window II

I am going to have a little at-home, Life in the Bogs Retreat.  I will fill my day with Silence as I practice yoga, meditation, take walks, eat nourishing and nurturing (and healthful!) foods, write in my journal, and even do some chores as part of the whole process.

Retreating into the green

So, enjoy the scheduled posts and I will be back live, so to speak, on Friday.  Hopefully I’ll be refreshed and ready for the last 100 days of my outdoor commitment.  Well, okay, technically it will be less than that by the time I return to blogging, but I’m sure you get the idea.
