While the radio and TV shout breaking news and our phones buzz and tweet, a whole other conversation is going on. It is the one about belonging, about finding a tether, a foothold, in the heart of the world.


Each moment is a well, a history, a lifetime, and a suddenly and irrevocably constructed door frame.

“We stand at a new doorway,
awaiting that which comes…
daring to be human creatures,
vulnerable to the beauty of existence.
Learning to love.” // Anne Hillman

“You are in this time of the interimRolling Ridge Study Retreat
Where everything seems withheld.
The path you took to get here has washed out.
The way forward is still concealed from you.
The old is not old enough to have died away
The new is still too young to be born.”


-John O’Donohue
