Last Night of Retreat

On the last evening of our month-long silent meditation retreat, we walked into the dark dining hall to find jack-o-lanterns on every table. The staff had a lot of fun carving them and then surprising us with them.

This is a feature of generosity: It feels good to think about it and plan it and it feels good to actually give. Two good feelings for the price of only one gift.
