Esopus – “The Thinking Tree”
When I was young I read a book by Enid Blynton called “The Thinking Tree”. This tree always reminds me of that book.
“The Thinking Tree of Esopus”
Kermit is thinking about “The Muppet Show” in Irish for a TV show.
OK. Here come the Daltaí royalty. Shouldn’t these people stand up?
Poor Lucas. During the weekend we had to call out the medics for him. Thankfully after a short stay in the hospital, Lucas was sent home for some well-deserved TLC from Judy.
Kermit wanted to learn everything he could while staying at Esopus. Here you can see him taking a break after dancing his feet off.
Ciara Nic Oscair, the Fulbright teacher, was happy to do a lecture during the weekend. Thanks, Ciara.
Kermit had some great teachers. Liam & Nóra were happy to give him a helping hand.
During the closing meeting Brother Owen stopped by to introduce himself as the new manager of the retreat house. We wish him all the luck in the world.
Wait a second. Is that Bernie and Mary trying out a jello shot? Hey, why not?
Our one-on-one sessions are very popular during the weekend. Even Nóra wants to get in on the conversation. Not sure about Liam though.
