Spiritual sustenance, naturally.

Sunday, Sunday…

Big day at church tomorrow. A new pastor will be offering his message, and because we operate via congregational polity, we will then vote about whether he will henceforth be the pastor of our little church.

Then in the afternoon, at 2 PM, Marian will be at the Real Food Co-op to speak with us about GreenSpirit and living lightly. And maybe about Elderwoman, as well. I hope to see you there.

Summer Gatherings

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After spending a week at a science and religion conference with more than 100 people,

IRAS on Star Island 2010

I came home to my husband’s college reunion at our home, with about twenty of his college friends, some of whom he hadn’t seen for forty years.

This morning I was on a radio show about the upcoming series for women Growing Older, Growing Wiser: Becoming an Elderwoman –

and now I’m planning for the annual campout of Wellspring Haven.

The weekend after that, I’ll be attending a college reunion of my own.

Reunion, Callicoon 2009

It’s been an intense summer of gathering in communities of diverse people. And it will continue into September, when I’ll be attending a Céile Dé gathering.

So much richness, and so little time to blog about it!

The Grands!

Very soon my granddaughters will arrive with their mother for a visit. Most people will be celebrating Independence Day this weekend, while I will be preparing for a house full of Interdependence.

Grandparenting is indeed grand. To be able to share family traditions, form unique bonds, and experience the daily growth and boundless energy of little people is a profound reminder of the depth and wonder of this Third Age. I will be forced to take it slow for this visit because of my ankle injuries, so this visit may be less boisterous than usual.

This visit also may mean that I will not be able to find blogging time for a while. But who knows, I may be surprised.
