    My alt (who shall be nameless) twittered the retreat.


    Jan 24:

    Snowing again, good gods. Hope I can get away tomorrow morning :-/

    Packed, but for things I'll use tomorrow morning. Next tweet from Malta, gods and terrorists willing.


    Jan 25 (first day):

    Flight cancelled, rebooked for this evening. Six hour layover in FFM.

    I'm in Malta! 10.5 hours late, but hey, who's counting?


    Jan 26 (second day):

    First day of Malta retreat: cold wind, happy places, prehistoric wheel ruts, the sea, seeing Being, almond cookies, pizza & wifi & beer.


    Jan 27 (third day):

    Orange squash + water:
    Summer of my eighth year, in
    Grandmother's kitchen.

    ............................ (silent day)


    Second day of Malta retreat: sunshine, silence, 2 kinds of almond cookies, pumpkin soup, walking, cacti, bamboo, TSK, tea, much napping.


    Jan 28 (fourth day):

    Third day: questions better than answers, free the dog, Punic caves, ice cream at the cliff, hugging Maria, sweet potato soup, the long Now.


    Jan 29 (fifth day):

    Insomnia on Malta is not significantly different to having it at home. At least it got me up in time to see a rainbow over the park.

    Fourth/last day of Malta retreat: responding (not reacting), walking down, words of one syllable, om ma ni pe me hung, rain.

    Church bells in Valetta at 6:30. Shabbat shalom, my dears.


    Jan 30:

    Politics at breakfast,
    watching their hands shake as their
    voices remain calm.

    Time to go! Hopefully no delays on the way home.

    Half hour delay in Malta, but at least there's free wifi.

    Home, nearly on time. Dinner, a quick trip to SL to check IMs, then bed.
