I have been trying to think what to write about my life right now to a five year old in Tanzania and a ten year old in Ecuador. I have no good answers, and life lately has left me stunned and silent. I am currently caught in the middle of a lawsuit involving a boat and a bathtub that will leave me having to move on again, slightly out-of-area, and cut off from my family for awhile. Definitely cut off from Los Angeles. There are advantages and disadvantages. I have been thinking about many things.
I am on the bathtub end of the lawsuit, which will keep me driven from the house until it is fixed. This morning I went to mass. Fr. Arturo got an ‘A’ in homiletics in two languages (and surely an ‘A’ in choir as well). This morning’s text was Luke 6:20-26 — the Beatitudes and their inverse. I could not stop crying.
2013 isn’t working out, but God is on the throne and I am loved. I’m not sure much more needs to or can be said.
I drew this for a dear friend — niece of another dear friend — a few years back. The full picture was Eleanor and Wentworth with a cupcake. Wentworth is getting on, but he and his amazing family really light my life. I am tired and wondering what is next.
