You know when you step into so much beauty that you almost cry ... ?
It was like that today, as I arrived at my new 'location' for these next few days.
Diana and I are preparing our Beautiful Truth Retreat for a small group of women who are flying in from all over the world.
And while we made plans together over months, the reality of where I am to spend the next few days is truly overwhelming today.
I remember my first visit to Diana and Micha's place. During the tour I noticed a small table next to a green-shuttered window, with a view out over a lush Italian hillside, and I imagined how it would be to inhabit that space for a while ...
Today I am writing this from that exquisite location. And it is as good as I imagined.
There is work to be done in the days leading up to Sunday but for today, I am luxuriating in the quiet joy that has filled me to overflowing.
A glimpse ... just a really small taste of what I am talking about.
Only a glimpse because I am running on a few hours of sleep, after a 3am start for the 4am airport bus and my 6.30am flight to Mlian. Despite that, it has been a day filled with quiet joy.
I woke while my plane was crossing the Italian Alps. Laid out below me and not too far away, it seemed, was ridge after shadowy-sunrise ridge, rising up out of the delicate early morning mist.
It's been like that today ...
