"It’s painful when God is leading you to a place, where other people who have been important on your journey cannot follow. Don’t judge them, nor judge where you’ve been. God was “back there” too, & still is. Don’t let your heart be arrogant. But also...don’t stop walking" Jonathan Martin

@katebowles I like the word “sonder”: dictionaryofobscuresorrows.com

I’m very prone to being overwhelmed by the feeling. Being in a place that’s seen much traffic (or very little) hits me with almost palpable force.

@tek Sometimes in a hotel room I wonder what it would feel like to see traces of everyone who’s passed through there.

This is like thinking about place memory from the perspective of the place.

"I'm torn between fulfilling my wildest dreams
To satisfy the beast inside of me
And a grounded love that raises me high above
The grabbing hands of cowards and of thieves"

I know it's not that funny but I just can't stop laughing. When the bear 🐻 attacks!

'I think a person needs to learn from childhood to find himself alone. It means to not be bored when you’re by yourself, because a person who finds himself bored when alone – as it seems to me – is in danger.'
- Andrei Tarkovsky

"You have to understand, my dears, that the shortest distance between truth and a human being is a story."
Anthony de Mello


It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.

Hi guys! Anybody here? (Asked the same thing on LinkedIn and nobody answered, even though I have a fair amount of followers there)

You are the Final Boss from a really hard game, so hard that until now no one was ever able to reach you, as they were still losing to the past enemies. Today someone finally show up ready to the challenge. Problem is you spent much time without a fight and completely forgot how to do it.

Thomas Merton’s letter to Coretta Scott King the morning after Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination - t.co/0bJkKg7PSu

"Fairy tales say that apples were golden only to refresh the forgotten moment when we found that they were green. They make rivers run with wine only to make us remember, for one wild moment, that they run with water."

G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

This was unexpected. I find myself in a hospital bed, I had to leave the church just before my Good Friday sermon because of severe stomach pain. My wife took me to the emergency and, well now I am here alone in a room feeling quite miserable. And it's the very same hospital I work at as a chaplain. Well I guess Good Friday is the best day to learn what pain is.
