For forty years, the apartments at the Institute have sheltered scholars and their writing. The walls of the abbey have clearly absorbed a half-century of prayer, which begs the question, how much writing anxiety have the walls of these rooms seen?
The monks leave out a brochure to help you navigate the liturgies with "a minimum amount of anxiety." Should there be something similar in each apartment to help with writer's block and scholarly anxieties? Perhaps the bowl of chocolate and fruit that the incredible staff keeps stocked for us, is balm enough.
