    of Pendle Hill.  Palmer was based here for a number of years.   It is a place of adult education, spiritual growth, exploration, study and more.  My wife grew up about a mile from here, and I used to live about 2 miles away.  It is one of the most important parts of American Quaker culture.

    This is in part a retreat, because I chose to reread that one of Palmer's books.   It is serving as a break in the actual task of teaching, a time for some reflection away from my normal weekend pursuits, which will have to be compressed into a few hours on Sunday evening.

    I thought a few people might find some of Palmer's words and perhaps even my thoughts in response to Palmer's words useful, hence this diary and the one last night.
