A Retreat

As you are reading this, I will be away on a retreat focused on a new discipline called "contemplative care" at the Garrison Institute in Garrison, New York --a beautiful monastery located on the banks of the Hudson River.  This three-day retreat is based on meditative practice, teachings, and silence, and is related to the work I do with hospice.  During these three days, why not browse the blog -- there are 75 consecutive posts (surely you have missed a few!) -- and choose three you most enjoyed.  Let me know your thoughts.  Perhaps you will even try a new recipe, or two.  I will be back in touch on Monday with renewed energy.  A thought while I'm away.  Think about cooking in silence.  I often do.  You will be amazed how resounding the "sounds of cooking" in the kitchen can be.  Namaste.
