Super Moon

It's rather frustrating to have a lens that only zooms to 135mm --on a night when we have this marvelous moon. But, I got a somewhat decent shot...

EAMC Celebrate Life 5K

Stefanie and I teamed up with Cindy this morning for the EAMC Celebrate Life! 5K. My best time! (not bad since we were treating it like a training run). For Christmas John got me a Garmin Forerunner 210. That's a neat watch with a Garmin GPS that tracks distance and...

The Princess and the Artist

I think Ella (the princess) will give her Papa fits when she is 15 or 16... and Lily (the artist) will have led the way! We travelled for holidays this year. Thanksgiving was spent in Florida with David and family. The girls shared their many interests with us:...

Cajun-Style Chicken Gumbo

Great for a cool weather meal, but light enough for summer! I use dark meat chicken to keep my spouse happy, but if I wasn't feeding him I would use white meat chicken. Enjoy! [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:5]

Carrot Cake and Cream Cheese Icing

Carrot cake is one of my family's favorite desserts. My brother and I had a competition going for a while, but I've deferred to him for the annual Thanksgiving carrot cake. But, that doesn't keep me from making it for family celebrations at other times. My recipe is a...

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 […]

    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 […]
