I’m back at Four Winds Camp – arrived on Shaw Island around 10:30 last night, then took the 7:15 ferry over to Orcas and spent my morning getting settled in and then helping out with the pottery class (hence the photo of the pottery bench, which despite the sunshine was a little chilly this morning). Lunch (quiche and Caesar salad) is over now, so it’s time for rest hour – I feel certain Rumi would approve, as today’s poem in A Year with Rumi reads:
Value Which is worth more, a crowd of thousands, Or your own genuine solitude? Freedom, or power over an entire nation? A little while alone in your room Will prove more valuable than anything else That could ever be given you.
