Sunrise-MyrtleIt's a cold and icy morning here in my neighborhood, one of those mornings where you want to stay warm in bed for a bit longer.Sadly, I'm already up and running, since today is going to be a very busy day for me. I've been traveling the past couple of weeks, and I'm slowly trying to catch up, in addition to the daily stuff that waits for my attention. I'm sure you experience the same thing all...

sunsetget]I had the chance to visit the Getty Museum today and it was a wonderful, albeit short visit.Before we checked out an exhibit on the art of Florence at the dawn of the Renaissance, my family and I had a bite to eat at the museumcafe. As we sat there on themarble patio, sipping wine and eating our sandwiches, my mom made a comment about it being a quintessential California day. She was so right.

Since I was able to celebrate with a lot of my family this year, it felt extra special.Even though we didn't get the usual sunny weather California is well-known for,...

prayerI had the chance to sit down with some friends last week to begin the process of talking through my doctoral project. We bounced around ideas and concepts from St. Ignatius, Scripture passages, and just general thoughts as to where I should head.A point we all kept coming back to is that many people who might be drawn to what I have to say and who might consider taking part in one of my...

buffalo bridge==Yesterday, I had a business meeting which took me to Georgetown, one of Washington DC's many neighborhoods.When the meeting was over, I asked someone how to get to the nearest Metro station. It was about a mile away, and since the day was sunny and warm, I decided to walk, mostly on Q Street.I don't know about you, but I love to explore new places. I've been to Washington DC hundreds of times...

St.-Elizabeth-ann-SetonToday, I had the chance to visit the nearby shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first canonized saint born in the United States.About a twenty-minute drive from my house, I enjoy travelling down the country road to the sleepy town of Emmitsburg, where Mother Seton founded both a religious order and a girl's school in the early 1800's.I love the fact that Mother Seton would have traveled on...

Last night, I went to a big celebration at my church honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe. This feast day comes from the Mexican culture, and over the years, I try to make at least one of the events surrounding December 12th.One of the things I love most about this day is the joy that is so evident on many in the Hispanic culture.
