Christ in the Desert / New Mexico

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 01:55:32 +0000

A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to sneak away for a few days at one of my favorite places – Christ in the Desert Monastery in New Mexico.  I’ve never found a better place for prayer, solitude, silence and the rugged beauty of the mountain desert. My timing was perfect!  Wildflowers in … Continue reading Christ in the Desert / New Mexico



Holy Land – Day 5: Church of the Holy Sepulchre – 1st Visit

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 03:54:46 +0000

Driving northward from the area of Jericho, we finally made it – JERUSALEM! I’ve dreamed of visiting this holy city for a very long time and it was thrilling to finally see it as we came into the city.  It was already late in the day but even driving through traffic I could sense that … Continue reading Holy Land – Day 5: Church of the Holy Sepulchre – 1st Visit



Holy Land – Day 5: Jericho and Mount of Temptations

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 02:42:57 +0000

Saying goodbye to Wadi Rum (and Bertie), we headed south to the border crossing at Aqaba/Eliat and then on to the ancient city of Jericho.   AQABA I’ve crossed international borders many times in my travels.  This one, going from Jordan into Israel, was one of the most involved. There was a very precise series … Continue reading Holy Land – Day 5: Jericho and Mount of Temptations



Holy Land – Day 5: Bertie and Me

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 01:30:44 +0000

I shuffled out of my tent-room as the morning light began to brighten the eastern sky.  A hush engulfed our groggy group as we shuffled through the camp and out into the dryness of the desert. Bertie and I noticed each other immediately, eyes catching from across the crowd awaiting us for our morning adventure. … Continue reading Holy Land – Day 5: Bertie and Me



Holy Land – Day 4: Camping Bedouin-style

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 01:05:55 +0000

We ended Day 4 of our pilgrimage Bedouin-style with an overnight stay at Captain’s Desert Camp on the fringe of Wadi Rum.  This desert camp of tents, some individual and some multi-room, was perched at the base of a large outcrop of rock.  An oasis of sorts, complete with palm trees, it offers an interesting … Continue reading Holy Land – Day 4: Camping Bedouin-style



Holy Land – Day 4: Sailing Across Wadi Rum

Tue, 31 May 2016 02:48:40 +0000

After visiting the ancient Nabatean capital of Petra, we hightailed it south to Wadi Rum.  Also called The Valley of the Moon, it’s the largest wadi in Jordan. What’s a wadi?  Good question!  Apparently, in Arabic and Hebrew, the word wadi basically means a valley.  In geologic terminology, we were taught that it means a … Continue reading Holy Land – Day 4: Sailing Across Wadi Rum
