View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

candle power

I have a piece at Chesterton and Friends talking about St. Francis and Chesterton as brother “poets.” Let me know what you think.

Writing the piece was a way to relax as I deal with Nana’s ills – she is to go to a nursing – Mollie, my wife’s dog, who will likely have to be put to sleep, the potential loss of my beard, selling my parents' home, contacting my long-lost nephew, rehearsing the students in the school play, finishing up the school year, and overall exhaustion.

As Ron Legest once said, “Some people burn their candles at both ends. I just throw mine in the fire.”
