And oh yes I remember chuckling at how our cat found a huge swatch of sun in the green room, as if it had a daily schedule (sun appointment upstairs in office; postpone nail appointment). The sun, the sun! I called like a lover, or maybe Herve Villechaize, before the gentle reminder of belated morning prayers to seek the everlasting light.
Bill of Summa has a fine smorgasbord of seven quick takes, including the comedic sixth item, "this space left intentionally blank."
He writes poetically of Bibles:
My new CTS Bible (Jerusalem Bible/Grail Psalms) is great, but I still turn sometimes to my hefty old 1966 Jerusalem Bible (the burgundy hardback edition). Its large noble pages are beautifully designed - they provide lots of open space for contemplation and scads of notes and cross-references for dot-connecting. It's a pain to hold for long, though.Whatever you think of the truth about the Medjugorje, there is truth in the purported words of Mary: "Dear children, today I call you to read the Bible everyday in your homes and let it be in a visible place so as always to encourage you to read it and pray."
This headline - Watching TV Linked to Higher Risk of Death - reminds me that the mortality rate is still 100% among human beings, TV or no TV.
I see Melissa Wiley has a post about her iPod Touch. Sans irony, I find myself googling "iPod touch addiction" on mine. Even found an Outback Steakhouse app that allows me to save orders so I can re-order at an i-touch of a button.
Melissa mentioned Betty Duffy's blog which prompted recall of the many blogs I've read over the years, Dylan's & Steven Riddle's & KTC's especially, but it seems like at any given time there's ONE blog that speaks to me in a particularly resonant way during any given period of time. Call me blogogamous. So here's my evolution of Internet reading:
On the first day God created Amy Welborn's blog, which I read as thoroughly as a Kremlinologist during the Cuban Missile crisis.
On the second day God created Tom of Disputations, whose blog I did not worship, though admittedly came close.
On the third day God created Bill of Apologia, whose electric style produced learned expositions on weighty matters followed by thoughts on breastfeeding (emphasis on the first syllable).
On the fourth day God created Betty Duffy, the most underrated blogger in the Western Hemisphere.
