Gentle spirits. Vibrant spirits. Generous spirits. When they all combine, I have to say that the celebrations are sweet! Truly, my life doesn't hold enough of these. I'm used to the work side of life, but I'm not used to doing much more than coming up for air until the end of a project.
Thinking through the few number of days we spent together, it's surprising how much room there was for celebrations with each other. We worked hard. We had tea. We celebrated our project, each other and even birthdays. No one was a taskmaster. We breathed, laughed, shared, collaborated, overcame, and built together.
I could go on and on about the people involved ... and I find it hard to accurately express what my heart has felt ... but it was quite amazing to me. The pace, the productivity, the peace, the people. To see it culminate together and be part of it all is a rather overwhelming honor.
This is part of what I need to bring back with me when I go home.
