Lovely to receive comments on last post. Thank you, thank you. I’ll hold off responding while I join in the retreat for the next couple of days. When I’m not sitting I’m working in the kitchen – peeling spuds, chopping apples, drying pots and pans and other such kitchen work. This change of pace and the recent rain is most welcome. Temperatures are dropping and the snow on Mt. Shasta is doing the same. Down to tree line if I remember when I last glanced at it.
