Who We Are and Who We Want to Become

Who We Are and Who We Want to Become

This past weekend was my “birthday weekend.” It was so nice! We did “dinner and a movie.” Somewhat due to my 15-year-old grandson Henry being one of the viewers, I chose the movie, “Blinded by the Light.” Based on the memoir, “Greetings from Bury Park,” the book...

January 6, The Feast of the Epiphany

2021 and Onward   Last year, it took me until late in the day to discover that protests had broken out at the White House. “Mirari” had just come out and I was on the road, hand-delivering copies to folks in St. Paul and Minneapolis who’d been helpful to me.  It...
Love is the Answer

Love is the Answer
