Today, I sat up in the Choir Loft and watched the procedings from that perspective.  That's how I see the people I love in that church when I pray anyway.  I'm gonna do that for the next few weeks.  It's hotter than hell up there but the view is great and the choir is great.  I gave a CD of Rufus and I playing "Hallelujah" to Sr. Kathleen, OP, who is a professional organist.  She said she liked the original better.  Then I told her that I am playing the same thing that Rufus is...  All she could say was "well I don't know how you can do that..."  All is GOOD~!

My mind conjured up a mental images of this woman saying that. Oh my! Wish I could be there to hear you sing it.

I can't sing all of it - some is too high - but I can play it on keyboards and boy did she run after her 'comment.'

{{Cyberhugs}} Hope all is well with you~!

Thinks are very well here, it is getting cold outside at night. All the house plants are inside, making the basement like a jungle. Hope your back and general health is on the good side of the chart. Happy All Saints Eve!

Brrrr... not that cold here to be sure, house plants of the restaurant below me are still flowering!  Thursday, November 1st, 2007 is my 28th Anniversary of being a Benedictine monk (hermit)~!   Party time!

Congradulations my brother, what an accomplishment! My very best wishes to you.

Now are you truly a "hermit" or just being as much a hermit as you can be in 2007?

Now are you truly a "hermit" or just being as much a hermit as you can be in 2007?

I suppose a 'better' hermit would need less electronics.  Hermits were always allowed writing tablets and ink.  Pirating Copying has been going on for over 1500 years!

When I prayed about that very question some time ago I received the following answer...


All I need I have.
I need all I have.


Works for me~!
