Unplugged and Off the Grid

   Unplugged, unreachable.  It was heaven.  I got to be at Christ in the Desert monastery in Abiquiu, New Mexico last week.
   Jake had asked to go on a week-long retreat, discerning his vocation.  Ron and I said yes, and then had to figure out how to pull it off!  It turned out that I went with him, while Ron finished work and took care of the other kids.  Then Mary joined us for the last few days.
    Such beauty.
    It is a holy place.
