I am preparing for my trip to womyn’s land — four of my girls and I leave very early Friday. A lot of my preparation for this annual trip to the land is spiritual. Of course, there is a lot of practical preparation that has to be done as well. But I have been feeling the horrors in the world right now — in Iraq, Lebanon, Afghanistan, the Middle East, in general — as well as here in the United States, and so I’ve fallen quiet. There are some interesting comments to recent posts which I hope everyone will read, even though only a few are displayed in the new comments section of the sidebar. I have a few things to blog about before I go, too.
