Camp Justin II-Boulder
A sabbatical is an act of courage. The seed of a sabbatical has only the promise, only the signal. It is an act of faith, a leap into uncertainty. The seedling must emerge from its strong protective sheath and venture forth. It is a time of vulnerability, a time of possible danger (like tulip bulbs that risk the frost of winter) but also a time of grace and mercy where all manner of things can unfold. There is strong medicine and magic embedded in the seeds of stepping out into the great Unknown.
