going on a retreat

Iona May 2007
I used to hear people talking about going on a "retreat" in terms of getting away from it all, a time for reflection, often spiritual. 

To places like Iona or the Bield at Blackruthven.  Although I've never been on one myself, preferring to change direction and move on to other new challenges.

However recently I have found myself going on a retreat.  Stepping back from things.  Disengaging from some activities or being forced to, by circumstances.  I'm finding it interesting.

It doesn't mean I'll be sitting back doing nothing.  It just means I'll be doing something different.  And that's fine with me.  For I like a change.
