i chose Stone Mountain, Georgia as my place of retreat from 2007-2009. the village was small and old-fashioned; most of the storefronts on the main street were closed. i rarely saw people in the streets, parks, or even yards. still, it was a beautiful place and time for me. sultry, desolate, slow. i learned about plants and also myself. i spent a lot of time alone, considering my strengths and fears, both of which grew/shrank beneath such focus.
