I Am An Anchoress
This is where I work.
One of my part time jobs is working as a docent in this lovely, lovely setting. I also am part of a team that oversees the many weddings that are conducted in this chapel. And on Thursdays, I will be on call to give tours, answer questions, watch over the site and learn as much as I can about the windows, woodcarving, ironwork etc.
I had my first days of training this past weekend and, truely, it wore me out! Not just physically but emotionally--I used to pride myself on being kind to people, being able to talk to anyone. I had'nt realized those skills had atrophied. I am actively working to bring them back to form!
I feel like Hidegard Von Bingen. In a good way
