Reub's journey

Respite




We just returned from a brief respite at a favorite spot in the central Cascades of Oregon, a place we often visit as the seasons change in March and September.  This year it has been a long winter, and the snow and ice linger.



 What a good place to think, just at the turning of winter. A quiet place, disconnected from the internet and no phone or television connection.




 The edges of things are interesting. Edges and corners are places where you must stop and consider.  What to keep, what to let go, what to change, what to defend.




 There are choices, very different directions. Man, everything seems like politics these days.




 What a beautiful country we live in. May we find our way to peaceful resolutions of difficult problems in a world that is complicated and ever-moving. May it be so.

    1. It's been an unusually long one here in Oregon. Post- El Niño year, I guess? Good for the mountains to have the snow pack.
