World Cup Soccer

The World Cup opened on Thursday with host Brazil coming away with a 3-1 win
over Croatia. Croatia took an early lead thanks to Marcelo's own goal, but
Neymar scored before Oscar tacked on a stoppage-time goal to see Brazil stave
off some late pressure from the European side and take an early lead in Group
A. It was Brazil's ninth straight win in World Cup openers.

I have just returned from spending four days in a guided silent retreat. The grace of silence is that it allows us to listen and reflect.
