May 16, 2008 - Scrignac to Brest, France

Scrignac to Brest, France The day we were waiting for had arrived as we drove about an hour to Brest, having picked up Marie-Claude along the way. Jacques had explained to us the night before that there was a legal problem related to burying the ashes of someone at the grave of another person, a French law, and that we would not be able to complete our mission of depositing Ruth's ashes at Bob's grave. So, when Jacques suggested we buy a red rose bush and plant it instead, we stopped at a flower shop to make that purchase along with white...

Oct 19, 2007 - Photo's

Oct 22, 2004 - Silence for 10 days!

From September 18th until September 29th, I spent 10 days in Brittany, France at a Vipassana Meditation Course. 10 days of no talking, no writing, no listening to music, no exercise, no taking pictures, no reading, and NO INTERNET. The week consisted of about 10.5 hours a day of silent meditation starting at 4:30am. For those of you who are thinking that this sounds like modern day torture... just hold on one minute! My Vipassana retreat was incredible and I have already signed up for another 10 days in December. The no talking thing was...
