Things I Miss At The Monastery

A last handful of photos, from my month at Holy Wisdom.

My favorite bench outdoors for contemplating, reading, and journaling. It's dedicated: "For Love of Jim Gray, Lost at Sea Near San Francisco, 1-28-07."


I even got my own temporary mailbox...

Watching the sky, the land, the weather change...

A red, red tree:

Don't eff with the bluebirds, people!

My last hike on the prairie.

The aforementioned sturdy shoes that fit (see last post). Also going abroad with me.

Daily prayer - five times a day if I wanted - and singing the psalms. I miss it already.
