I just spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to find the school I went to in PR.  Using various internet maps w/ satelite option, I was able to find our house, the hospital, the church, and the public square, even though  everything is dramatically more developed than when I was there.  But I wasn’t able to find the school.  So frustrating!  I also couldn’t find the monastery where my brother and I snuck into the bell tower hoping to ring the bell.  First time we tried it, we were caught by a monk who chased us out.  Second time we tried it we were caught by a monk who took us up into the tower and let us look around at the city below.  That is even now, forty plus years later, a cherished memory.  God bless all monks, especially the hospitable ones! 😉

I am Christian, married, a pianist. My favorite composers to play are Beethoven, Chopin, and Bach. I'm also an avid reader of great literature, and I like to write: it helps me think. I try to avoid "tribal thinking"; I'm glad and grateful to be Catholic, but I believe all Christians are my brothers & sisters in Christ, those of the Jewish faith are my cousins/elders in faith, and all human-beings are my fellow beloved-children of God. I believe God is our Loving Creator. God loves everyone, no exceptions. The Holy Spirit is growing me in Christ. Other things about me: I can't stand bullies, but I still try to understand their point-of-view; I abhor cruelty, and I do my utmost to make peace inasmuch as it's up to me; I enjoy challenges, variety, spontaneity, color, but I also like solitude, quiet, order. My healing and my bliss is in recognizing I am part of the Body of Christ. Shalom!
