Final Thought...

Just one last thought on the theme of the last post, and then I'm putting this puppy to bed for 2008. A song from my youth, which just came up on my 'pooter's playlist while I was washing dishes...

I don't want
To work away
Doin' just what they all say;
"Work hard, boy, you'll find
One day you'll have a job like mine."
'Cause I know
For sure
Nobody should be that poor.


The retreater's life isn't for everybody, it's true. But that's not to say it isn't a great life.

I hope you had a good 2008. I wish you a better and more freedom-filled 2009. Blessings and peace be upon you.

And so to bed; a good book beckons me. The dogs say hi.

Hi, dogs!
