I really am tired, folks. After a very rough semester, I'm still not caught up on work! Plus I'm doing some extra (serious) writing, and completing assignments in this spiritual direction preparation program (yes, I am training and discerning that)...it all boils down to needing to close my eyes, breathe, and take a blog break, at least until after my birthday. (You get to not blog on your birthday...right?) I hope to be back May 27.
May 26 is my birthday, and more importantly, the feast day of St. Philip Neri, left. Apparently he was quite the hilarious practical joker, and a good one to inspire me on this mini-sabbatical. But doesn't he look like he is about to get beat up by a baby angel? I mean, that cherubim has some serious attitude going on.).
The current caption contest is still going strong....
p.s. On an entirely different note. I need to do a one week directed retreat (preferably Ignatian exercise-based) as part of this program by the end of July next year. If anyone has suggestions, I am receiving them with gratitude. This has been a lot harder to arrange than I would have guessed. I'd prefer someplace which doesn't consider drum-making an inherently spiritual act. Thanks!
