After the Ball

I wonder what she's thinking... Not many good shots from this year's dance recital. The lighting is difficult, to say the least. But, I do like this one.

Cultural Appropriation – Really?

I was reading a piece in the Washington Post concerning "Cultural Appropriation." The whole thing struck me as absurd, so my next step is to research this term and what it means to folks. From Wikipedia (via Google): Cultural appropriation is the adoption or use of...

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...

Cousin Camp 2016: first images

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

Luke showed up yesterday. He weighed in at a healthy 8lb 9oz and is doing very well. I got to hold him for a while, which is one of the most pleasant of my recent experiences. I pray that this child will be healthy, happy, safe, gentle and kind. I pray for him to...

Kaufman’s Nana Bread

I’ve been making this banana bread recipe since Meg passed it on in the early 1970’s. Yes, I gave up Crisco and now use coconut oil, which is even better! And I measure the bananas quite generously.

RSS Journey to myself

  • Transformation / Metamorphosis
    Not long ago the Sunday Gospel was the Transfiguration — Jesus takes Peter, James and John up the mountain where they see Jesus as he truly his. The gospel says “transfigured”, but in many ways it seems to be transformation or metamorphosis. Like the resurrection where Jesus becomes the Christ. The interesting term to me […]
  • There is no closure… dancing to someone else’s drum
    Not sure how this all fits together. My first reflections this morning were on how to “let go” — I read the readings before mass; I thought of Solomon asking for wisdom and letting go of his own glory. I reflected on Jesus’ words about finding a treasure and selling all to be able to […]
  • Priest, Prophet, Servant [King]
    Fr. Troncale was our fill-in priest yesterday. I must say he was a breath of fresh air. He wanted to sing all of the verses of the opening song. He was friendly, inviting but serious. And he homily was both easy to follow while reaching deep. Yeah — about that. He focused on the aspect […]
