On Wednesday I was supposed to pack up and drive three hours to a Vipassana Retreat. Once there, I would maintain noble silence for ten straight days.
Ten days of silence of the mind and soul. No reading, writing, creating, speaking, gesturing...
To top it off, sleeveless tops were not permitted, and I was not ready to cover my arms in the heat of summer in the desertous mountains.
So I've postponed my trip.
In the winter, when I am overwhelmed with routine, students, lesson plans and the gloom of short days and early darkness, I will seek retreat in Vipassana.
I can't wait!
