Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul
-- Marcus Aurelius

In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion

Dear haiku friends,
In the fever and agitation of modern life, the need of meditation and spiritual repose impresses itself on the soul, which desires to reflect on its eternal destiny. During the Season of Lent, many Christians pursue this practice of retreat.
