Postcard from Up North

We too are called to withdraw at certain intervals into deeper silence and aloneness with God. We cannot find God in noise or agitation. ~Mother Teresa

(A solitary winter walk on the Bluff. I too have had my version of silence this week…technology glitches kept things quiet over here. Turns out the aloneness was a good thing, but I’ll look forward to seeing you for our usual recipes, photos and stories next week.)

    I love your recipes and am wondering if you plan to write a cook book.It’s not just the recipes, I also like the little stories that go along with them.

    I’ve missed your blog posts and I’m glad the opportunity for solitude came your way. What a blessing. Beautiful photo and great quote. My heart eased as I read it. In all the great hero’s journey myths, the hero always returns with a message of blessing for the community. Welcome back!

  5. Maureen, I concur with all the beautifully written messages above–such lovely words on which I cannot improve and they say what is in my heart too!
