Well, I had a great time at the Men's Retreat. Mostly because the setting was so dang pretty. I did a lot of walking in the woods alone, kayaking, swimming, and hiking with friends. These things made the retreat a true joy. The teaching component was okay, but I'd have been happier if I could have spent more time swimming, to tell you the truth.
More on all this later. My new work-schedule is really cramping my blogging style, so I can't promise when.
