Monastery in spring

Monastery in spring

On Friday, we drove to the monastery through sunshine. Monking Friend and I talked non-stop in the car, catching up on each other's lives. The breeze that came in through the open car windows felt like summer, and I swear, I could see new leaves unfolding on the trees as we passed. By the time we reached the monastery, the spring flowers that Brother Joking planted all around the grounds were in bloom.

I love your monastery trips. Jo(e) I just wanted to pop in to say that although my commenting has been slack, you've been very much on my mind in the last month. Perhaps I'll shoot you an email one of these days.

Anyway, this is a cyber hi five to say HEY!

Hey, Julie. Do send me an email, and we'll catch up. I should have more time myself once the semester is over.
