Counting the Omer with Visual Journaling - Day 32
Today is the 32nd day, making four weeks and four days of the Omer. Endurance within Presence / Endurance in Humility: Netzach within Hod. In 2011 when I made this journal, I attended the 5-day retreat at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico: Presence and Gratitude sponsored by Mishkan Shalom and Jewish Mindfulness at Mishkan, led by Rabbi Yael Levy. We had arrived there I think on the 31st day. On the left is my feeble attempt to sketch Box Canyon when we had hiked up while suffering the effects of radical change of altitude.
This year we passed up an art opening that several friends have work in and also an interesting musical Shabbat at a nearby synagogue, in favor of sitting with our neighbor on her patio over a bottle of wine and visiting. It felt like a nice end to a day of planting flowers in containers on our deck, that was so satisfying.
