Good morning!

It’s Sunday. For those new to the Respite, Sundays are when we go outside and spend a minute in nature. Today we’re standing on a small spit of land overlooking Penobscot Bay. It’s a sacred place, and we come here often, you and I.

“You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen.”

—Joseph Campbell
