Ten Percent

Seven weeks from today I will be here.

I don't need a typical Ignatian eight-day silent retreat. I need something straight from the Scriptural source, more in the line of forty days.

Would forty days of silence be enough?

I guess it doesn't matter. Four is what I get.

I plan to go here and not move for 96 hours. My spiritual director will have to come to me.

Can I come, too? It looks gorgeous, tranquil, and just what you need after this very stressful internship.

FORTY days of silence?

I can't even imagine that, but then I'm not doing CPE either.

After your hard work this summer, an oasis of silence will be refreshing and rewarding. I wish you could go for 40 days but wouldn't want you to be silent for that long.

It looks wonderful. What a great place to integrate what you have been doing and learning.

What a wonderful goal! Such good planning. Thank you for the links--it's a beautiful and serene place, especially where you will sit.
