“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”  ―

Thomas Merton

I have recently returned from 80 hours of silence at the most gorgeous Benedictine abbey at Rostrevor, Northern Ireland … it was quite an experience (even though it was my 20th such retreat…but the longest yet!).  It has been a challenging year so far and this time away was just what I needed.  I had thought of posting one or two photos but to give you all a real sense of the place … I’m popping them into a slideshow so that you too can appreciate the beauty of the place … enjoy!!
