No, No, and Yes
Secluded from other campers, the fire was a bit smoky, the night so not chilly, with just enough clouds to make us feel "closed in" outdoors. A beautiful and interesting way to debrief. There was some emotional hiding - I suspect encouraged by being hidden by flames, across the fire, physically away from each other a bit. Mostly we spoke in past tense, way past tense, about the week, the lessons, the love, the learning, our level of commitment.
In the end we paired off again much as we had at the start. The leaders in one room, the sisters in another, the two old friends in another, and the two newer friends in the last.
Would we think @ NOLA so much if we had finished?
Would we keep in touch with each other waiting for the next opportunity to solidify?
Would I want to return so badly that I find when recently asked, I said I am willing to co-lead a team in October 2009?
No, no, and yes.
