    Jim,

    I played your “Solitude” early this morning and wrote a paragraph in reply. I liked my thought so well that I wanted to save it. But in the act of trying to save it, I lost it. I know I can’t recreate it, but it was something like this:

    “Experiencing your ‘Solitude’ was a good way to for me to begin the day. Your retreat cabin reminded me strongly of my house here on Pony Creek. How can I leave this place, where I am invited every day to entertain the thought you express? Yet to leave it is our plan, mine and Susie’s. It’s a bittersweet action we contemplate.” (These are not the words I found and then lost this morning, but they suggest some part of the gist of them. Now, at the end of the day, lines from one of Shakespeare’s sonnets come forward to address the bittersweet moment: “‘This thou perceiv’st, which makes thy love more strong / To love that well which thou must leave e’er long.”)

    I still grieve over the lost words; yet I’m glad for even the above imperfect reminder of the pleasure I had in your 1-Minute Inspiration this morning.

    Charles

    That’s it…I’m staying in Heathwood next time.

    This was so, so beautiful, Dad. So true to the spirit of GilChrist and to life in solitude (with evening community).

    I love this…and you.
