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.

updates from the edge

Let's see ...

I'm down 29 pounds. 13 more to my initial goal.

I am still blogging for the local newspaper - even got my first check!

School officials have backed off the "shave your beard" requirement , sort of. The head of the school board said basically that while they would prefer I shave (as all men in their denomination do), and they would like me to think very seriously about it, they are not going to force the issue because I have done a good job. But they still want me to think about it.

They did a benefit performance of my "Robin Hood" play for the school (we had done it at graduation, but not all the folks in the community had seen it). It raised $38,000. Yes, that amount is right.

My grandmother is deteriorating. She was in the hospital again, and it's looking more and more that it has to be a nursing home for good and no more assisted living. Sigh.

Someone suggested I consider the diaconate again. Not possible at this time (grandmother and father, wife and daughters, working three jobs, with another job as Santa in the fall).

I have been working extra shifts at the radio station this summer. Got to interview Senator Chuck Schumer the other day. (Have to keep my pro-life views under wrap at the station. Alas. I would have loved to ask a few pointed questions, but the focus of the day was on protecting chemical plants from terrorists, not protecting the unborn.)

Got a poem published in the latest issue of bottle rochets

your coffee cup
still on the table
half full

My haiku group has a chapbook coming out in September. It will have 6 or 7 of my poems in it.

Did I mention that I lost 29 pounds?
