    ...I mean, like---off camping. Seven days to capture the last days of summer and maybe plan for the winter. I was thinking to myself it would be great to meet up with some Camping Babblers and just sit around the campfire and babble.

    ...but then---we don't talk to each other much.

    Sorry ND, not much brewing here. Have a great trip. Maybe things will pick up here.

    What can I say?

    It rained - providing uninterrupted reading and contemplation.
    It was *cold - providing an opportunity to sleep soundly,
    with only the rain tapping a rhythmic tune on the tent walls.
    It was *autumn dark - providing a shroud for meditative prayer.
    This was the ambience that surrounded my retreat.

    * Cold - one evening it dropped to 3 degrees [about 37 American].
    * Autumn Dark - The sun set at 7:05 PM and didn't get up in the morning until 7:14 AM.

    Did I enjoy myself?
    I did actually.
    A friend stayed for two days and we talked into the wee hours of the morning.
    He brought steak and wine for the occasion.
    I was taken back by the quick and sudden change in the colour of the leaves.
    I'm privileged as I am blessed.

    -----> I was taken back by the maturity of the colours; in the area that I live they are beginning to change, but a lot more slowly. My experience in the past tells me that come next week we will see a significant change. Next Monday, in this neck of the woods, is Harvest Thanksgiving which is a national holiday. I wonder how many people will be saying thank you for the abundant harvest?

    Anyway - I have a weekender on November 1st [actually I'll be instructing a course program] and then on the weekend of November 22nd, I'll be out in the heart of the fall season breathing in some of that frosty air. o_O
