It was such a lovely day today that I headed out to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit for the afternoon.
I intended to sit in the cool half light of the church, but when I parked I was overcome with the desire to sit in the sun. The field was inviting, and the birds were all singing at once.
There was a blanket in the back seat, a leftover from a harsher than normal winter, so I made myself a little island in the middle of a green ocean. The birds sang to me and the sun finally got past the ever-present chill and warmed me. All the way through.
I read and wrote, and I think maybe I dozed a little in the sun, too. And then the bells called us all to prayer. I couldn’t resist the pull. Look, the gate was open for me.

Hello would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a fair price?
Cheers, I appreciate it!
Love your post and reminding me what a tranquil place the monastery is at any time. Must plan to visit it again someday when we are in the area.
