I was going to say that there seem to have been an extraordinary number of dead things in the area around your retreat space, until I realized that this is one of those parts of the cycle that is often invisible to us yet is always around us. Not extraordinary! :) thanks for something to reflect on and for the other things you've shared about your experience during your solo retreat.
