"I'm every woman"


Kidding - I mean, every sinner.

.

I used the Chaka Kahn song title because of a meditation I've been pondering this past week. Last Sunday or Monday I decided to read the Gospel as if all the sinners, cripples and other outcasts that Jesus either encountered or spoke about in his parables, were actually me. The idea, "I'm every sinner" originated one morning at prayer, which led to my search for Gospel stories to see where I fit in. It remains a good spiritual exercise.

.

Anyway. That is why I've been offline for so many days. I had nothing to write about... I have this huge log in my eye which makes it difficult to even see the keyboard... so I kinda lost interest.

.

Oh. I've been busy painting as well.

    I thought that maybe you were dead lying under a pile of unfinished paintings with a paint brush still stuck in your frozen blue hand while the cats gnawed off some sort of body part. I think i've seen that story on the news. Glad it wasn't you !

    I've got a log in my eye too and it's been there for a while and it's gotten all nasty and infected. I usually don't notice it but I can't avoid it when it flares up real bad usually during Mass and at Confession.

    Say, do you notice when people pray for you ? I mean does your car run better ... that kind of stuff. I notice in my life when people pray for me. I feel better.
