Time to plant

 We have had a wet February. Last week into this week we had over 10 inches in 5-6 days. And it stayed chilly. Today not so much. Beautiful and I am working up a sweat planting.

So today we put in broccoli, spinach, romaine, swiss chard, peas and beans. I will plant corn before the end of the week. We may have another frost, but if it isn't too deep the corn should be okay.

Oremus pro invicem!

A life worth lived?

The question that was put to forward at a gathering I was at this weekend was: Do you want to be alive or do you want to be living?

In these times of CoVid19, this is a question we should be asking ourselves. Are we sacrificing a life worth lived just to stay alive and well? Are we sacrificing experiences which make us better persons and possibly make a difference to others in order to stay safe and well.

What is more important, our soul or our health? (This question is one I am not sure how most of the US Bishops would answer based on their actions in the last year.)

So many of us now exist and operate with fear that it begs the question of whether that existence is worth the cost.

I do think CoVid is real, but is also being used nefariously: Fear + Isolation = Power
