The trip is about 20 miles north of the house. A world of difference. This is a good "I need to escape the city" trip. The fields are still green and the wild flowers are in bloom...spreading a carpet of yellow and white across the grasses. When I find thoughts straying to "I wonder if I can rent a house out here" ~ I need to remind myself about SOLITUDE and ISOLATION and the other difficult lessons that Wild Woods Retreat East taught.
