RIP Robin Williams:

Robin Williams died? See what happens when you go away for a retreat in the middle of nowhere? You miss all the big news where it happens. Actually, strange as it may seem, I'm still up in the bush in the middle of nowhere... although I'm now lodged in at the owners camp and not alone in a cabin... because due to four straight days of rain and low clouds, the plane coming to pick me up has been grounded and can't fly in to bring me home.  Now being weather stranded in the Canadian Shield is hardly uncommon so that's not exactly what I find strange.

Time for my annual retreat

G'Day folks:  I will be going on retreat this coming week up to a secluded cabin up in Northwest Quebec where there are no phones, TV's, radios, electricity, or internet. All there is is peace and quiet, bush, water, and privacy. In other words... heaven on earth! (IMHO) I will be praying for all of you and ask you for the same. I'll resume posting here 'Where the Rubber Hits the Road' beginning next Friday, August 15th when I return to civilization. Have a great and blessed week!!!
