THE SPECIAL CROSS OF THE ARTIST





SCENES NEAR DUSK IN GLOUCESTER, MASS.

I'm on Week Two of the Ignatian Exercises. The beauty, on every level, is indescribable.

CONSTANTLY out walking. Pondering, gazing, praying, praising, wondering if I'm gaining weight, and last night, doing a jigsaw puzzle.

Will not even attempt to share the epiphanies, insights,deep consolations--as well as the constant sense of unworthiness--that flood in upon every moment. Every day is a book's worth.

Here's this week's piece from the Tidings an interview with Hollywood screenwriter Barbara Nicolosi called "The Special Cross of the Artist."


THOUGH I MYSELF AM HARDLY SUFFERING AT THE MOMENT.
HAPPY TRAILS!

  4. I was struck by the line, "People of faith have no faith in people." True enough, although it seems like there's some basis for a lack of faith in people given the way things are going, the wars, our bankrupt financial system, etc..
