glory days

When the ginkgo loses its leaves, it does so in practically one fell swoop. Today this beautiful tree on Providence Road is only bare branches, but I took the picture a few Saturdays ago during a retreat break. While maybe not everyone's idea of a dream getaway, I got to spend two incredible days, head firmly in clouds, discussing ancient archetypes, the mysteries of faith and how to seek wholeness in a culture that beckons toward the superficial and unbalanced. Suffice to say it was a ginkgo-tree experience as everything unimportant fell away, providing a glimpse of heaven.
