the first course in Rhode Island is over. It went well with a lovely bunch of people and many thanks to Terry for hosting it and housing me and to her family for putting up with all the comings and goings.
I arrived and managed to drive from the airport to Marblehead in the dark in a very roundabout way. I’m beginning to think I should have a PHD in getting lost. The advantage is that you get to meet some really interesting people when you stop to ask the way.
On the way down to Rhode Island I tried to visit Plymouth rock twice and missed it both times, but I found the Plymouth Plantation which is a living history museum about the first settlers and the native americans. It was fantastic. They have recreated the settlements and the people there are cooking and digging and reading and talk to you as thought they really are there at that time. It was an amazing experience.
At the other end of the scale I walked along the cliff path at Newport and went into the back entrance of the Astors mansion where I was greeted by the butler and then given a tour of the home. Everyone stayed in character the whole time and it was another great experience and I even got to meet an orthodox priest who is into Quantum Physics! How cool is that.
At the moment I’m staying with Cynthia and Ed Lefkowicz who are hosting the Transform your Past retreat and we’re having a great time catching up, walking on the beach and talking and talking:) Ed’s a fantastic photographer and he’s going to take some new photos of me, that I hope will look like the me I think I am! I’m sure you understand what I mean:)
We’re just off to buy supplies for the weekend and then I get to go out to dinner with someone I met on the earlier course and have a tour of the area.
It sure is a great life and I’m loving it.
I hope all is well in your lives too and that you’re enjoying the change to Autumn.
PS there are no photos because I forgot to bring the lead to upload from the camera, however, if you want a tour of Cynthia’s house, which she’s selling, click here.
