I spent a wonderful, peaceful, nature-filled weekend at Temenos Retreat House near West Chester, Pennsylvania. It was just what I needed at a rather stressful time in my life. I was with friends and did lots of hiking and birdwatching. I also drew some of the old 19th century buildings on the retreat grounds. This old stone house is currently abandoned, and I was told that it would take at least a million and a half dollars to completely re-build it up to modern standards. I'm sorry but that is a little out of my price range.
