Disconnected weekend

This weekend I am disconnected.  No internet, no cell phone, no computer, no TV, no radio, no newspaper, nothing that connect me to the rest of the world.  I went to a retreat in Rosemary Height in Surrey.  It is a very beautiful place far away, about an hour drive from Vancouver.  The site is built for the sole purpose of hosting retreats.  It is surrounded by trees, it has lots of greenery, we even see a deer outside our the building.  This retreat is not those cheap retreat or youth camp I used to go to, I no longer have to cramp in a room with 8 other people, we have single rooms with comfortable bed.  The quality of the food is surprisingly good, we even got my favorite dish, roast beef, for dinner.  It is nice to have a relaxing weekend once a while, remove yourself from daily troubles, search deep inside your self for a quiet reflection.  Boring, maybe, but when your schedule is packed solid tight 7 days a week, boring time that you have nothing to do, you cannot do nothing, you don’t even have to think about anything else is a welcome break from the busy life.
