Highlights from a travel year out of the comfort zone (excerpt)

Outside Atlanta in Conyers, Georgia, I got a glimpse into the spiritual life of  Trappist monks while touring Monastery of the Holy Spirit, where prayer services are held seven times daily.  After admiring the Abbey Church, bonsai garden and monk-made stained glass, a stop in the gift shop was in order. The flaky biscotti and moist, Southern-style fruitcake from the monks’ bakery make great gifts. Check http://HolySpiritMonasteryGifts.com.
