What does God see? Is God looking at you kid?
Seeing separation and change from a bigger perspective Humphrey Bogart delivers the line "here’s looking at you kid" like no other. Lately I have found myself feeling like I have been looking out at the world through a bubble, observing separation, change and wondering about God's window.

All works of the Lord,
Bless the Lord-

On my daily walk I noticed along the sides of our very long driveway large clumps of grass cuttings left behind by institutional mowers from the university next door.

Today was a wonderful day, as I led my first virtual retreat live on Zoom, hosted by the Peace and Spirituality Center. More than 60 folks attended and the conversations were truly wonderful. I am very grateful to the staff at the Peace and Spirituality Center for being willing to work with me to adapt my planned in person Peace Day to an online retreat.

I am amazed at the things Catholic sisters say during a podcast!
I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately because we’re starting to transcribe the podcasts. So far, 18 podcasts have been transcribed and are posted on the website. Only about 550 more to go. Yep, that’s a lot of transcripts, my friends. And in those transcripts, there’s a lot of insight, joy, and wisdom from the sisters!

Finally! Spring is springing
... from branches and from the earth, decorating the Hills with that bright green that contrasts beautifully with the patches of snow still hiding in the coulees and in the shady parts of hills.

It takes a lifetime to realize the truth embedded in what Jesus told people as he walked on Earth. His words about following him can be daunting! Many times we get scared and want to walk away from his ways, giving a solid “No!” to his invitation to follow.

With signs of springtime everywhere, it's still hard for my body to belief it's really here. We had snow on Saturday, temperatures below 40 degrees as I headed back to the office for the first time since March 16th, and I am beyond eager to wear open-toed shoes outside...comfortably.
But, there have been some lovely days, and the buds and blossoms are definitely showing. One of our most beautiful, "show-off" trees anchors the courtyard. You can see that even Scholastica can't stop staring...

“Practice” – how many times as kid
May 10, 2020 (At the Corner of Susan & St. Joseph)
Have you noticed that everyone (and everything) is weird these days.
And that no one is weird at the same time?
If you find yourself tired or anxious or frustrated or annoyed or even angry, of course you are. We are going on 2 months of this strange reality with no clear path forward that seems comfortable, sure or safe.
