I finally know where west is*


The sun came out for a brief hour this afternoon and I ran out to get these pictures in real sunlight!

This is the house where I will live as a guest-volunteer for the next month.

When I arrived in Austria on Tuesday, and ever since, it looked like this, wet, rainy, cold, and foggy.
It's fine, though; the community members have hearts full of light! 
More about the commune in the previous post.

*I realized that for four days I did not know which direction was which.
Today I saw the sun for the first time and knew that my room faces west.

It looks very pretty, Dina!

Anxious to hear all about the time you will be spending there.

Is the wet weather a relief after the desert? We keep hoping for rain here. Had a brief shower last night but that's it. Not far away they had drastic flooding. It's all a bit weird.

It looks very nice there. So green too. Is it a religious house?

A great place to stay Dina! Have a great time in Austria!

Petrea, I quite like working in the light rain.

Crystal, the community lives by the ideals of St. Francis, has common prayer three times a day, but the members are not monastics (although one is a priest).
