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.

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?

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).
