The Shift that Comes from Sitting Still

It’s been a week since I returned from the 7-day silent meditation retreat.  Aside from feeling more normal as I settle back into my former routine, I’ve noticed a new-found appreciation for sweeping the stoop, folding the laundry, and even emptying the dreaded dishwasher (my most abhorred chore).
