It’s beginning to look like Spring!

High of 12 degrees, sunny…

Construction still going on inside my building and there are no windows that open in the building. It seems to be a trend in academic buildings—a trend that I abhor full heartedly. No breeze, fresh air! Nearly preposterous!

None the less, Sunshine is bathing Ottawa in light…

I finished re-reading Anne Lamott’s Traveling Mercies… I am reading, writing and journaling more; I think I am beginning to process the transition to the summer (move, school, job-searching/finding, new/old church, new/old everything) and this processing has meant less talking on the phone (a miracle), more journaling, more silence, more evenings alone.

I feel bad that I have not been able to keep up with the book reading of Great Lent on the O. Café website, but I am finding that I have to read this book a lot slower… I should of known—when ever there is a spiritual book with a lot of new material and depth in it, I read it really slowly, taking note of everything, writing quotes down, thinking about it, praying about it, etc.

So the only reading I do more quickly is books that are on a different level—like Lamott’s book…

So it is;

I am feeling more heartened today than I have in a long time; for this I am so thankful. Spring is coming… and we are in the second part of lent—we are preparing for Pasca.

So glad to hear you are feeling heartened, elizabeth! Glory to God, and may He have mercy, also, on me.
