Time at home and Holiday September – October)
September was a time for rest and taking some time to help at the community mother house. It was so good to be home and enjoying the simple community life again www.northumbriacommunity.org …. we feel very fortunate to have such an amazing base that we can call home.
At the beginning of October we gathered family in the south of Spain for Martin’s 50th ….. lots and lots of food, games and laughter ….. also much fun watching the English rugby team beat Australia, in the World Cup finals whilst sitting in the sun!!!
…. and our Stateside adventure.
Back to the States for a tour with Kevin and Fergus taking part at various events including a conference in Houston, an outdoor evening concert in very humid San Antonio (bugs galore), leading a workshop on indigenous and cultural music and an artisans gathering in Denver, Colorado.
A day off saw us in a canyon where the temperature was over 100 degrees, chasing wild turkeys and roadrunners. America has some stunning scenery and staggering landscapes and travelling around allows us a brief glimpse of the beauty of God’s creation.
One very bizarre happening, a number of these “orb” like things appeared on our digital camera pictures?!? It turned out that many other people were getting them too. I did some research on the web and found that it is quite a phenomenon which no one really understands??
