Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

The Perks of Papacy

Photo Thanks to AP

Papacy Perk # 204 ~ More legroom and privacy while flying than anyone else in the universe. Anyone. You could set up a cricket match in that amount of space. And where is the large, perspiring businessman nodding off dangerously close to His Holiness' shoulder? Where's the two kids, ages 3 and 5, playing toss-the-beanbag with their peanuts? The breastfeeding mother who has misplaced her cover-up blankie? The convict wearing that odd set of bracelets flying with a federal agent ?

Nice perk.
