Tonight I had a lovely surprise: one of the Community Guardians skyped me unexpectedly from California. It was really nice: we'd spoken by email but not in person before and it was really good to finally be able to talk openly. It's also worked out well because we've discovered we're only 3 hours "practical" time difference, although 21 hours in reality - it was 10pm his time Tuesday, and 7pm my time Wednesday.
There's been a lot of movement inside over the last two weeks or so. I've been doing a lot of silent meditation in the evenings after compline, which has been really interesting. I'm finding that I need that time, and I need those spaces of silence in my day for the rest to make sense and to help keep me centred during the day.
