Thoughts on Hume
Gotcha didn't I? You figured a philosophy guy like myself would be posting something on David Hume with that title. Nope.
Instead it is Hume Lake, where I went last weekend with a group of friends for a couples retreat.
Over the years I have been to quite a few camps, retreats, seminars, and conferences on how to do this or that better, be more effective at something, communicate your ideas more clearly, or learn some new discipline.
Unfortunately there are not a lot of new ideas to fix things. Mostly it comes down to us doing the hard work to put those ideas to work in our lives. Something a lot of folks are either reluctant or unable to do.
Which brings me to why I went. I mean if I was only going to get so much out of the conference part of a weekend like this, why would I go?
For the fellowship and community with a fantastic group of friends.
And the time away, together with my wife, from the day to day stuff of life.
More than any quick idea, or three step plan to improve a relationship, time away together is one of the most important building blocks of a successful growing relationship.
You should try it.
Thanks Chelle for a great weekend!
