I'll be spending this week with brother priests, on retreat in a spectacularly beautiful place. I've not been able to be with them since January 2006. Something Army-related has always taken precedence to keep me away from here. (In fact, I suspect I'm supposed to be somewhere else, but perhaps because I didn't go out of my way to investigate that possibility, I don't have any orders to that effect, so hooray!! I'm able to be here in Malibu, instead. Playing hooky.)
This is the vista that greeted me as I walked from my car up to the dining room upon my arrival.
It's going to be a great week!!
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
