Worlds Apart

Today was labor of love in Seton Hill. This year, I decided to volunteer at Caritas Christi (Caa-ree-taass Kris tea). I did not get a chance to make arts and crafts with the sisters, but I met some of them; they were friendly. I finally found out where their headquarters were located. The big imposing building behind Farrell Hall was Caritas Christi. I think I will be visiting them often.

Besides the hospitality of the Sisters and the staffs, I found their chapel, very inspirational. On three sides, the glass walls framed nature in a picturesque way. Its blue stained-glasses intermittenly placed captured the ever reaching rays of the shining sun. The background in general was nature. It was so uplifting, to sit in a quiet, and undisturbed place (free of the elements of the earth), at the same time, one could not but help noticed the power and grandeur of the sailing masts of clouds, the verdant hills and the bending trees in the foreground. It was so beautiful, and to think this chapel was only a few minutes away from the Hill, it seemed like it was a world apart.

La di da!

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds...with consistency, a great soul has simply nothing to do."
~Anonymous

Things change
The clouds roll on
Something to Nothing to one-thing
Yesterday, the child
Petty and "clingy"
Clings to the past
Today, the man
Independent, dependent
Depends on the moment
Yet looks for consistency
Tomorrow, Who Knows?
Uncertain, but goes on
Goes on to live
The clouds are gone
Change is inevitable


I saw the City Dweller/cellars perform yesterday, it was very entertaining. I laughed "so hard I could barely breathe."
