We came to commemorate a very special tenth anniversary-having survived cancer, retirement, mental & physical afflictions and rediscovering art, music and life in our fifties. This place embodied for us the meaning of all those journeys.
I found myself held within the tenacious and worthy grasp of Santa Teresa of Avila and began reading your copy of Mirabai Starr's very gifted translation of her Interior Castle, then purchased a take-home-study-and-mark copy of my own. Meditations in front of the fireplace were memorable, by the way. Thank you for providing the library.
We sat often outside in silence watching the cottonwoods turn loose their leaves, listening to the water tinkle like bells in the leaf strewn ponds.
To care-take a holy, sacred place is the employment and avocation of one inspired and one gifted in spirit. Thank you for holding this spot on earth so gently, so lovingly, so tenderly in your protective palm.
Grateful and full with memories,
Mama, Ruth, Edna & Felicia
P.S. The wine was wonderful. A beautiful agent of welcome.
