Sweetie and I decided to take off for the San Luis Valley tomorrow for the long weekend. We have some land in Crestone but we stay at some friends' house while we're there. It's an interesting tiny little town where several spiritual groups have landed and made retreats for their members. Colorado College has a remote campus there and Naropa will be building there soon. It sits right on the northern end of the Sand Dunes National Monument (soon to be National Park). Last time we drove out to an amazing
stupa built right on the edge of the mountains overlooking that vast expanse of a valley. It's one place on earth where quiet is in abundance, except for the sound of an occasional breeze or bird singing.
