I'm pouring a lot of effort into my ministerial internship (which is wonderful), but that leaves less time and energy for blogging. I know others who managed to blog happily and prolifically through internships - but maybe they didn't have the hour+ commute that I have.
"Welcome to Heaven ...so I'm having lunch with a friend a couple weeks ago and we're talking about our blogs, his job, our cats, Christmas songs, my theology paper, our families, my upcoming internship, how I've overbooked myself (again) and the holiday frenzy. As we get up to leave, he looks at the wall behind me, smiles, and says, "I like it."
I looked over the UU Blog Award nominations this morning.
"I'm really tired of hearing about the Super Tuesday primaries. I know it's exciting for y'all who are in those states, but my state's primary is two weeks later."
(A friend was taking photos of tattoos for an article he's writing. I said I wouldn't show him my skin, but I'd write about it...)

"Jeremiah was RIGHT!" exclaimed the Rev. Dr. Herbert Lester, Jr. at Centenary United Methodist Church in Memphis on Easter Sunday, in response to the scripture reading of the day which was Jeremiah 31:1-10.
We are not our own.
Earth forms us,
human leaves on nature's growing vine,
fruit of many generations,
seeds of life divine.

Every now and then I think, "I should really have a blogroll off to the side, like other blogs do."
It's a sign of the apocalypse, or something. My ultra-conservative congressman and I agree on something.
For this post to make any sense, you must read the previous one, "Honor and Remembrance."
We've had a busy weekend. Yesterday we attended a wedding, which made us think about being old enough to be parents of children who are old enough to be married (we are!).
So... pre-GA I'm here at Ministry Days - a gathering of UU ministers and seminarians with a day for professional development/continuing education and a day for UU Ministers Association business.

There are women who love women every now and then
There are men who love men because they can’t pretend
They are men who love women who love men”

Radovan Karadzic, last seen in public in 1996, has been arrested.
I know - it's been awhile. I've been thinking, and reading, and caring for my mother who had eye surgery two days after my last post. She's doing as well as can be expected, but frustrated at the slow process of healing.
OK - before you think "Has Earthbound Spirit lost what was left of her mind???" - let me explain.
Perfectionism strikes again ...or something like that. I figured I had to check, since everyone else is. (Yes, this was a quiz, of sorts. But this was the only post for September!)
Why, yes, it has been awhile ...since my last post! But I've been busy:
I've been posting some YouTube videos on the "Vote No on Prop 8" campaign, and today is "Write to Marry" blogswarm day.
OK - this is a very quick post, because I've had things to do this morning and I'm off traveling in about 10 minutes! (video of "What a Wonderful World," post-election)
Our eldest cat, our boon companion, was “summoned” this past Friday.

We laughed, we lost, we loved.
So it will probably be again in 2009.
I pray we all laugh and love more than we lose.
