For our 30th anniversay Patty and I received an invitation from Leonard Sweet to spend five days on Orcas Island on the Puget Sound. Across the still waters are a smattering of the San Juan islands, while Vancouver Island and snow covered peaks can be seen through a bluish mist. We saw bald eagles, a family of sea otters, a sea lion on a rocky outcropping and orcas sporting 100 yards away. But, it was not so much what we saw but what we heard that impacted us. It was the seameless, liquous sounds of silence. A recipe for the healing of the battered and badgered–the plugged-in and worn down. Kierkagaard would approve.
