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!

A Contemplative Sort of Day

Today is a day off work which means a number of little household tasks to accomplish, most of them pleasant. I am in a state of nostalgia due to several converging factors, and reflecting on the ephemera of life's pageant. Wacky philosopher Jonathan Zap says that one should avoid doing things which you will not remember well on one's deathbed, and I agree. I am attempting to chisel my life into that mold.

I began the day with Mass at Saint Patrick's, finishing up with a brief prayer session in front to the Blessed Mother. I heartily recommend that as a great way to start your day.
" ... more honorable than the Cherubim
and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim;
without corruption you gave birth to God the Word;
true Theotokos we magnify you ... "

Came home, watered the flowers in the garden, then made a pair of glass bead and Swarovski crystal earrings and matching necklace for Heart Of Gold Jewelers and now I'm blogging, the it's off to do errands and work at the local food pantry. What joy the simple things are.

Live well! Pax Christi.
