A few days ago, a first-time visitor came by my place on Heterocera, just as the meditation session at Refugium was getting to a close. She joined us for coffee at the Refugium cafe afterwards and later wrote a blog post about her visit, including several very nice snapshots she had taken there.
I think River Pearl's post has been the first time someone has blogged about Refugium and Norgaard Village (well, someone other than me, who can't shut up about it). More than the nice words she had to say about the place itself, it felt gratifying to learn that my friends and I made her feel welcome and included.
