Lighting a Candle

It’s hard to write anything in a public forum right now without being absolutely irrelevant.  And truly, I don’t have much that is relevant to say. I have spent more hours than I care to count refreshing the news and obsessively reading everything that might shed a glimmer of light on the crucial question of why. And although we all are collectively unable to answer that question, I continue still to seek meaning and understanding where none is to be found. In this way, I find that working for religious sisters is instructive.  Whereas I seek academic understanding (and fail), they seek to pray and console. I am grateful for their example.

Tomorrow (or soon) I will get back to writing about food. Today, I am still thinking and praying.
