up the mountain

July 22, 2007   |   1 Comment

Getting ready to leave Boulder and drive several hours north to Shambhala Mountain Center. Will be on meditation retreat until Aug 2. I wish it was longer. Very much so. I have enough clothes and snacks to last several months, that’s for sure. It feels like such a departure from everything ordinary that I try to soothe myself with outfit options and my favorite kind of black tea. But nothing can really protect you from the joy and sadness of being exactly who you are. They’re both equally uncomfortable. So here we go.
