Ten days in the country...

I am leaving tomorrow for a tiny town not far from Denver, where I will participate in a meditation retreat - in silence, for 10 days. I've never done anything like this, and I'm a bit apprehensive but I'm going for it - in the quietest way.

I'll be out of contact at the retreat: No phone, no computer. No pencil or paper.

If I have stories about the experience and it seems appropriate to tell them here on my blog page, I'll do that. If it were someone else's page and the writer made such an announcement, I'd be interested in his/her comments afterward. I'm having trouble imagining what I might have to tell you that wouldn't sound like a string of psychobabble cliches. 

I'll be home on the 30th, same old dude. I guess....

Same old dude perhaps, but with more space carved out deeper for you to fill with new ideas and adventures. Enjoy the retreat.

Enjoy, Maynard, and come back with some profound thoughts for the rest of us!
