See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

I'm back.



I took an extended blogging break.

It is amazing how liberating it feels to be offline and off the news feeds.  Amazing.

It has been a retreat really, and my only occupation has been painting.  I'm just about finished - just a few 'tweets' to add to the composition.  The painting is loaded with symbols. 

I'm unable to read all of my emails and comments right now - but in the next few days I'll try to address those which need a reply.

Being offline and working on the painting has helped to confirm some of what I have written regarding blogging, the Internet, and the trend of living one's life online.

I'll be back shortly.

  4. Your sabbatical seemed unnanounced, so I suppose I wasn't the only one worried about you. I thought you might have been working on a masterpiece - and I know how labor-intensive it can be to poke holes in a holiday canvas for those littile LED lights, to get that Kincadian effect. (lol, just kidding) Seriously, - your fans love you - and will worry about you too.

    Have a great Thanksgiving!

  6. I have never stood in a confession line as long as the one you kept on your post.

    The Thanksgiving picture has so much symbolism we are working overtime to decipher the Monarch programming and the symbolism you included; we have not gotten past the images you placed in the clouds.

  10. A little humor goes a long way in America.

    I understand the Brits don't have any.

    Must be something in the water?

  11. No, Pablo, that's the Germans, not the Brits. :)

  16. Happy Thanksgiving a day late.

    Boy, you got this one right. It's good to take a break now and then. My slow-down has been facilitated by my main computer throwing a nutty and finally having to take it in about 10 days ago. The netbook works too slow and the keyboard is annoying to me, so I just haven't gotten online as much and pretty much limited my time to reading tweets and retweeting. I've done very little posting.

    It makes me quite disappointed when I look back at the day and see how much time I spent on online stuff versus how much time I spent reading Scripture or the saints. Just one more thing to carefully moderate.

  17. Pablo, that was a Conga line. I went to afternoon Mass yesterday and the line was still two pews long; it had begun at the center, so was four pews long when Confession began. I got lucky last time and went about 15 min before the end of a daily confession and there was no line. Rare occurrence at my parish.

    Miss Nan, how old are you?
