A Short Reflection

Duino. Day 6. It was July 4th on the bus from Venice with exhausted Duino campers and staff that I realized the beauty of all that's going on here. Beauty is a relatively vague and subjective term, so, let me define it. Beauty is people from ages 15 to 51, representing 19 different countries, spending their days speaking, listening, exploring the complexities of what it is to be a member of a global community, what it is to be human. I know, this is relatively touchy-feely, but, getting beyond the rigorous daily schedule of classes, meals, and the dreaded 11 pm bedchecks, there's some great stuff going on here. Stay tuned for more...I have a feeling there will be some good stories.
