Around 9:30am today I left home with two riders. We stopped in Columbia, Mo. for Shakespeare's Pizza. All 3 of us ladies got 8 inch pizzas & killed them. I'm hoping I can talk them into stopping on the way back on Sunday. We arrived at SLU ( St Louis University) after 3pm sometime but before 5pm traffic. We checked in & were assigned a suite: 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, a living room, kitchen & laundry. There was a welcome buffet supper, then off to St. Francis Xavier College Church. There was music, mimes, and juggling, followed by pop/punch ( no booze)/coffee & cookies. I know it sounds really weird. It was. He juggled grapes, then machetes, then beanbag chairs. WTF! 3 freaking beanbags chairs! Really! The music was beautiful. I ran into people from the silent retreat from last week. Even someone I met in 2005 when I did it then. Had a Jesuit friend from St Louis sit with us at supper. The buildings are cold & it was surprisingly cool here outside today. I've looked at the schedule & classes being offered & picked my three. Since breakfast is at 7:30am across campus & I need to get up at 6AM I'll close now. Oh yea why am here? It's a national Ignatian Spirituality conference. You can feel the Love here!!!
Ps. Kanga,I miss you!
