I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no "brief candle" to me. It is a sort of splendid torch that I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
George Bernard Shaw


Happy Sunday night here. The grand kids were here all weekend - delightful. I took them back to mass and Sunday school for the first time this school year. Sunday school has just started up. They are so happy and warmly received in their church community and so am I. I like having more than one spiritual tradition in my life. Today after mass the church had an international feast in a number of rooms with foods and parishioners in dress from all over the world - and music and dress too. I restrained myself with the food but enjoyed the atmosphere and watching the kids enjoy the food.

We had the best in ordinary time this weekend, cooking, eating, talking, doing homework, decorating for Halloween, K.K. and I helping Bob grade student work. So much in my life is so good- bright treasure.

I think it is terrific that you enjoy more than one spiritual tradition in your life.

The international feast sounds like fun. What willpower you had to restrain fom eating. Sometimes one can enjoy things only be looking. Good lesson to have learned this 'late' in life!
