Walt said it at Quarry Hill, I heard it; Saskia read the Canticle ofthe Sun, which mentioned mortal sin, at FrancisFest at Hermitage


Viva la Vida  (live life) 
1. Pecado mortal es de rechazo vivir, ve a ver, vida cotidiana.Mortal sin is the refusal to live, to go through, and see, everyday life.        (--wfh Feast of Francis 4Oct2013)
             2. "Many residents I know are having difficulty letting go." (--wle, age 92)

If you don't 
  dwell
     on it 

You lose  
   sight
     of it --  

You live
     through 
           it 
(--heard poem, by wfe, 4oct2013)


 “When we are living our own great story, it may be exhilarating in some ways, but there is also always an ‘of course’ quality to it. It is just ourselves that we are being, so it just feels right… there is  no way to be happy except to live out our own deep, great story. No life, no matter how successful and exciting it might be, will make you happy, if it is not really your life. And no life will make you miserable if it is genuinely your own."
(--Carol S. Pearson in Awakening the Heroes Within: Twelve Archetypes to Help Us Find Ourselves and Transform Our World.)

Eve of Francis


He saw no difference.


He was one of us, one with this, transitus.

Watching, with love


I don't know.
Angel of God,my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here,
ever this day,
be at my side
to light and guard,
to rule and guide. 
 
(Olé, Amen, OK) 
Still, it is a prayer I remember.

Fondly.

Down close to absurdity, irrepresentatives

Look to the right. Clowns, sent in, step unsober out of small clown car.
This is not equivalency shared responsibility for a difficult issue. This is the way children in schoolyards watch swaggering bullies walk away with lunch money.
The unconvicted wander halls of less and less thought.

Merely business as usual in the big house.

Send in the clowns


Don't worry, they're here, grandstanding in republican red noses.

Yes?


Yes!

( That's that.)

Any questions about this?


I've got nothing better to do than not explain consciousness.

Life is here.

There's nowhere else.


You see?
"We have nostalgia for another life when we do not live life." (Raimon Panikkar, p.25, The Experience of God)
Yes.
