      Been encountering too many of the latter group lately. Makes for a most unpleasant Sister Madly.

  3. For in my faith I have found truth. And in that truth the obligation to seek a greater understand of truth – which means abandoning man’s narrow definition of truth.

      Yes!! Beautifully stated!!

      Even if we have found what we thought we were seeking, it doesn’t mean the journey is finished.

  5. Couldn’t agree more. I often have the pleasure(?) of the company of those that believe they have found the truth – very draining indeed.

      Draining- that’s certainly the word for it!

    I appreciate the info and advice! You’re right- definitely not 70 year old photos. My first thought when I read ‘public’ is royalty free/stock photo, etc, but that’s not always the same thing.

    I understand why you feel passionately about this. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

  9. Sister M. has done well with this one. And many thanks to Ray L. for the education. I always learn something (usually disturbing – clowns! mimes!) when I visit.

      Thank you! I believe the mime/clown curriculum has been completed for the semester, thank heavens…

      Never too old for education, even if the only thing taken away is to be more mindful! ;c)
