I went Saturday out to Godfrey, IL to the OMI novitiate for a Halloween party out there. Then last night to the city near where my parents live to help with an event. So much fun! (P.S. I'm Jonah in the whale.)
Today in our ICN we talked about embodied spirituality with an afternoon on healthy sexuality. S. Joann, a Carondelet CSJ from L.A. led us in some energy exercises and a self-health inventory. I have decided I could benefit from stretching a little more (especially after I run) and did call first thing when we got back to see about getting an appointment for a massage. Releasing tension and being aware of my body is an important part in taking care of myself and, in turn, hopefully being able to care for others. It is a piece of holiness that I don't always honor as I should. I was actually amazed, though, at how many things I am mindful of particulary in regards to my physical health. I at least have a good start.
Hopefully the weather will hold and I'll get in a couple more days outside before the leaves all fall and cold sets in for real. Well, I haven't begun to read my articles for class tomorrow, so I'd better get off this computer. More next week...
