down the shore

We spent the day at our retreat house on the shore. The presentation was wonderful - an exploration of the spirituality of peace of our founder Margaret Anna Cusack - and the company was equally as wonderful. It was our first real chance since we arrived 2 1/2 weeks ago to spend some quality time with the groovy people of this province ... Sisters & Associates. I made some new friends and reignited some old acquaintances. As usually happens at big groovy sister events, my face and stomach muscles hurt from laughing. That was one of the first signs 2 years ago that this was the community for me ... such joy.

My bloggy friends will also identify with this moment ... when you meet someone for the first time and it turns out that they've been reading your blog! In this case it was our presenter for the retreat day. He mentioned that I'd quoted him on the blog, which is true. He's written some wonderful reflections on our founder that I've spent quite a bit of time with and even blogged about! It is always a little disconcerting when you meet someone who knows your inner most bloggy thoughts!

All in all a great day.

The world gets smaller and smaller -- Fr. Terry is a good friend of our community, too!
