So summer (as in the '6 week holidays') are almost upon us now. I've got just a couple of weeks - not even that - of 'work' left, and then I'll be off to Taize. Am looking forward to going very much. I'm going for two weeks, the first week I'm going with a group of people from Leicester Diocese, some of whom were in Taize at the same time as me last summer. The second week I'm there, I'm not entirely sure what I'll be doing. I'm currently contemplating doing a week in silence, though that might be a bit hard core.....we'll have to wait and see.

Then I'm back in Sheffield for a bit. Got a week of working on my disseration, as well as doing some prep for the autumn, then I'll be in our local secondary school for a week, helping out at their summer school. I did this last year as well - it was really good fun actually, as I get to spend a week hanging out with young people, while playing with digital video cameras and computers.

Then I'll be off to Greenbelt, about which I am also quite excited. Last year was my first time going, and the lesson I learned was not to try and do so much. I went to a few too many seminars and stuff, and think this year I need to chill out a bit more. If anybody reading this is also going to Greenbelt, do comment, it would be good to put faces to commenters, and lurkers. I know there are some of you out there, cos you've been searching for my name in Google.....who are you?

Anyway, thats about it from me for now.....nine days till I go to Taize!!!!

Six days to go now!! So excited, can't wait to go to Taize. Jealous you've got an extra week - silence would be hardcore but I can't think of a better place to do it; I can imagine you'll get so much out of it.

I'm also Greenbelting this year, looking forward to that too. I'm not working this year so that'll make a difference.

Roll on Saturday! :o)
