Letting Go of a Schedule

no schedule was passed out.

(One was posted
if you cared to look at it,
I discovered the the last morning.
I’m glad I didn’t know earlier.)

We were told what was happening
the next few hours,
the next half-day.

A bell would be rung to signal mealtime
or gathering time,
no need to be bogged down with the rest.

Loved that.

    I love the thought of a real “retreat”–retreat. Lovely.


  2. Me too! I loved the relaxed schedule. The time to simply “be” in community with others, unhurried with breathing space and time to connect, share stories, simply share a small, early morning “circle of light.” 🙂


  3. Such deep refreshment came from that rest.

    I never inspected that bell, never took note of the beautiful ropework. Thank you for sharing it.
