Thanks so much for all your thoughtful responses to my post on the contemplative life. It seems I'm not the only one who struggles with balance! I want to respond to all of you more in-depth, and I'd like to share a few changes I've decided to make in my own life, but I'm afraid that dialogue will have to wait. Ironically enough, I'm too busy right now to blog about un-busying my life. He-he-he!
The truth of the matter is, I'm on my way to a cabin in Minnesota for a much-needed writer's retreat. Some good friends are joining me for a few days of conversation and fellowship, as well as a little shop talk and maybe even some work. Anyway, I had grand intentions of blogging before I left, but I'm afraid that's not going to happen. I'm going unplugged! There's no TV and no internet at the cabin, so I'm off-radar for a few days. Wow, that sounds good.
In addition to putting our conversation on hold, I'm going to have to postpone our monthly edition of The Grapevine. Don't worry--it's coming! It's just going to be a couple of days late. You're mid-month, book-giveaway, author introduction, and all-around pick-me-up blog post will be coming Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. Stop back then to meet another amazing author and her equally fabulous work (plus a chance to win a free book, of course)! And stay tuned for more on trying to unravel the contemplative life. I think we have much to offer each other... I read this passage once about iron sharpening iron...? ;)
