Fall in New England

We spent a long weekend in Westerly, RI visiting my husband's family. Now that is what Fall should be like... frost in the morning, cool, clear beautiful days, and trees beginning to burst out in fiery colors. At home it was in the 80's. In New England it was in the...

Once again, I'm not at Cousin Camp. But, I can enjoy the pictures. There's a new kid in town this year:  Luke is probably not sure what's going on, but he seems to be taking it in stride.

Welcome Luke

RSS Journey to myself

  • Expectations
    Today is Palm Sunday. Today at mass we listen and participate in the reading of the Passion — of the final hours of Jesus of Nazareth. As Christians we know that whole story. But, what of the expectations of those who didn’t already know? What of the expectations we have of others and ourselves — […]
  • Martha, Mary and Lazarus
    Today’s Gospel reading was the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead after he had been in the tomb for four days. Four days! The reading is full of how Jesus loved Lazarus and his sisters Martha and Mary. How they were very close friends. I began to think how we all have different […]
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Pride
    I’ve pondered this budget that the new President has thrown out for consideration. I’ve listened to those, like Senator Ryan, who make claims about cutting out services as “an act of mercy.” I listened to those who voted for a candidate who is definitely not going to make their lives any better — who seem […]
