If I could erase one thing from my memory what would it be??? Not what you think, I am sure. There are a handful of memories that are so heinous I wish they could be forgotten.

Which way do you lean when it comes to food preferences - sweet or salty? Given the choice, my go-to favourites have always been foods that are salty - and usually high in fat - with French fries and potato chips tied for #1 on my list.
How do we perceive the Divine and communicate with God as beings who have both physical and spiritual senses?Some ascetics might try to starve their physical senses to sharpen their inner senses but such a notion seems to me to be contrary to Catholic wisdom and practice.

After discovering over 20,000 pins on one incredibly rich and varied board on Pinterset yesterday, I have spent hours extricating the best images. So it makes sense to present 7 collections of my best finds in 7 quick takes, everything from icons, great art to wonderful words of wisdom.1stunning icons...more
I am prompted to blog about rereading old blog posts. I absolutely do it. Furthermore, I fully enjoy it. I have yet to read an old post and ask myself, "what the what"?But of course, that is how I think it should be....more
Just a few weeks ago, in response to the Photo Friday "Green" prompt, I shared a recent picture I'd taken of ivy covering the decrepit Walker Power Plant building. Today's prompt reminded me of another photo I took a couple of years ago.
