Happy May Day! The picture above and the guest post below are from Spirit Daily, a website I visit often. Given my recent posts about my own garden, I thought the post does a great job of taking garden imagery and adapting it for spiritual insights. I hope you'll think the same.

Wow, I'm really glad its Friday. It has been a whopper of a week, and I'm glad to be able to relax a bit.Earlier this evening, I was laughing with a good friend about the fact that I keep holding on to unviewed Netflix dvds for so long that I'm having to return them unseen so I won't get charged. I'm hoping things slow down in the not too distant future. In the meantime, I guess this is what...

On Friday, I dragged myself home from my first week at Catholic University. Let me just say they don't mess around there. Doctoral studies are hard, much more than I anticipated.That being said, it's also a joy to be back in a great learning environment. There's a lot to do, and a lot to learn. Somehow, I have to put it all together, but I think I'll pull it off.When I got home last night, I...
