On retreat

"It is a great thing to know the season for speech and the season for silence" (Seneca the Elder).

This week, I'll be on silent retreat with the clergy of the diocese at Montserrat (the Jesuit retreat house north of Dallas, unfortunately, not the Carribean island nor the Benedictine abbey near Barcelona).

"Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard
Are sweeter: therefore, ye soft pipes, play on"

(John Keats, Ode on a Grecian Urn).
