80 Extra Steps

By Laura Melton Tucker, September 8th, 2011

My husband and I were lucky enough this summer to attend an adult version of “summer camp.” We accepted a gracious offer to stay in a family member’s vacant high rise condominium, overlooking all of downtown Portland, Oregon. We stayed for 5 weeks and entertained 13 visitors. Our adventures were of all types – physical (lots of hiking and crazy yoga with youngsters), emotional (you try being middle aged and plunking yourself down in a new city with few reference points) and spiritual (opportunities for deep connections with visiting friends and family). One of the spiritual adventure days is a story worth telling.
