What happens when the vision, approach and passion you've been given and painstakingly developing for 35 years may no longer fit within the current professional situation in which you find yourself? That's what I'm asking right now regarding my place in the university system. The changes have been swift and phenomenal over the past several years. Do I still belong there? Is it workable for me or not? Is my vision any longer needed by those whom I serve there? If I stay, do I need to express my vision differently? These are the questions I'll be asking while on retreat in the Great Sand Dunes this weekend . . . and in the coming months. I pray that I might retain the coyote's spirit of lightness and humor regarding both myself and my own crazy foibles, and to be able to find the Creator's trickster quality through it all . . .
