We were very tired, we were very merry—

We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.

It was bare and bright, and smelled like a stable—

But we looked into a fire, we leaned across a table,

We lay on a hill-top underneath the moon;

And the whistles kept blowing, and the dawn came 

We were very tired, we were very merry—

We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry;

And you ate an apple, and I ate a pear,

From a dozen of each we had bought somewhere;

And the sky went wan, and the wind came cold,

And the sun rose dripping, a bucketful of gold

We were very tired, we were very merry

We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.

We hailed, “Good morrow, mother!” to a shawl-
covered head,

And bought a morning paper which neither of us

And she wept, “God bless you!” for the apples and 

and we gave her all our money but our subway fares.

Mary was sinless and so knew how to contemplate mysteries, angels, Sacred Spirits.

She will happily show us how.

Christ on throne


Scripture of Mass on Nov 15/2020



Blessed Lord

Grant grace to hear your word

read it

mark it,inwardly digest it and hold fast to the blessed hope of everlasting love in Christ with the Holy Spirit.

Psalm 123:

I lift my eyes to you on your throne in Heaven

Look until you show me mercy

Kiss and wash your feet

I have had enough of contempt, scorn, indolence, and derision

Show me your mercy

Show me my Master.

Epistle: I Thessalonians 5:1-11

I am a child of light

a child of the day with a breastplate of faith and love

Build up each other and live with Him!

the Gospel: Matthew 25:14-30

Co-create with your master.

Light your basket to shine in the dark!


word becomes flesh


The word of God for Nov 14, 2020
Isaiah 61: 1-3
God has sent me to comfort the broken hearted, to announce liberty to captives
And to open the eyes of the blind.
He has sent me to tell those who mourn … he will give:beauty for ashes; joy instead of mourning; praise instead of heaviness

Share your experience , strength and hope with all the broken people in your path

For a Change
by Connie Wanek

Earth had become a job that required
constant customer support.
Humans didn’t seem to understand
the basics of their service.
Mrs. God suggested a standard message
when people first connected:
The Kingdom of God is within you.
“Honestly I think it gives them
a sense of agency,” she said.

But God thought the problem stemmed
from a confusing owners’ manual.
“Some of these translations are inscrutable,”
he said, paging through the dense instructions.
“What about a series of drawings,
where steps would be illustrated with a
puzzled little angel, sort of like IKEA?
And of course an extensive
FAQ on the website.”

“It’s worth a try,” said Mrs. God. “The most
important thing is that people know
they’re getting accurate information.”
“For a change,” said God.

IMG_3458On February 5, 2020, Quenby designed this birthday feast at home



and then on Valentine”s Day, Jeanne transitioned back to a hospital gown as AMC’s ER again brought her back from respiratory arrest

The look means she transitioned from self care to trust as Quenby and her Mom switched from self care to trust and compliance. AMC met my every need. I was able to share with my 3 different room mates in a cardio-thoractic unit from heaven. The more mobile I got, the more independence I won. That led to 3 showers taken by myself and an acquaintance with everyone in the hallways, day and night. They loved all my styling: hot colors of robes, slippers, tiny Museum of Modern Art Light, and Lavender no crack lanolin cream. That stuff made my IV’s fall out by themselves.

Now I have a drain in place to heal the pleural efusion (Pleur-X), and my mobile talents are sustaining  me at home once again.

Oliver’s Birthday




Oliver is nine on Feb 9, 2020


He gets nine dollars twice: $18.

Not enough for his new bike pedals,

but enough for multiplication and addition practice

learning to budget time and dollars

learning to budget patience too

daily at the mill of generosity

in the village where children thrive!
