Fall Break

"Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins?
Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God.
Even the hairs of your head have all been counted.
Do not be afraid.
You are worth more than many sparrows.”

Luke 12

New Eyes

"It seems to me that the most fundamental need of our society is . . . to have men and women who together will create communities of welcome for those who are rejected, alone and lost ---and their number is legion. It is more than ever essential to rediscover the sense of home as a place of tenderness and welcome, where each one can find the deepest value of his or her being ---the heart with its capacity to receive and to give."

I just discovered Jean Vanier

I just spent $200 on about a months worth of drafting supplies. To relieve my feelings at the injustice of the world and in particular of the commercial system (what is wrong with having wealthy patrons to supply these things for you, I ask???) I have searched out remenicences of an early time and examples to remind myself of what I'm trying to make anyway.

I love!!

It does help. But I'm still not opposed to being a little patronized...
