A solitary day


I am thinking back over my day in the solitude of the cabin at the farm.  Looking for some profound things that I can tell you.  But it was just good quiet time.  

What I enjoy most is the time to pray – no interruptions, any posture I wish before my God, knowing that for awhile it will just be him and me. He was very present but nothing enormous happened.  No visions, no spectacular revelations.  Sometimes I wish I would experience God in those ways but he seems to just be there with me.  And as to the clarity I needed on a couple of issues – well, the time was good to work through those.  Some things became more clear, others more complicated by an e-mail message when I got back home. 

So I prayed and read – mostly am reading in Matthew and Joshua right now.  And I am reading a little book I borrowed I Believe in the Holy Spirit by Michael Green. 

And I always take some music along. This time I had CD’s along but was short a few batteries to use the CD player, so spent time making my own music on the recorder.

Took the camera too.  The weather wasnt great but I got out to take a few shots.  There are lots of mushrooms around this year, thanks to all the moisture.  The camera stimulates me to study things around me more closely – to really look.   I think it makes me see things from a different perspective, to tune my eyes more to details, colour and to the beauty of shape and form.

    Nice pictures, but can you name the genus and species of those mushrooms? I have a mushroom field guide that you can borrow for your next trip.

    I have no idea what mushrooms these would be. I would never dare pick and eat any – I am too ignorant – but prudent. I’m afraid the next time I go they will likely be under snow.
