Time to retreat for a couple days . . .


To find the universal elements enough;
To find the air and the water exhilarating;
To be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter;
To be thrilled by the stars at night;
To be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring--
these are the some of the rewards of the simple life
~ John Burroughs


Heading up north for a bit of simplicity.
Blessings . . .

You retreat, I'll blow the trumpet. Send me a post card. The natives will never know what hit them.
Enjoy.

Enjoy the R&R, Kathleen. But in this arctic nonsense, shouldn't you be coming South? Oh never mind... it's cold here too.

Safe travels and happy trails!

Enjoy. But, 'headed up north'? From Minneapolis? Man, you must like it frigid.
