where the day went ... we walked at seven ... tried the original path but the clumps of unmelted ice & snow made trouble ... so we walked through the neighborhood ... then i was off to the emissions station for the car's biennial check-up ... we passed ... then i wandered around b&n for a bit & left with a copy of The Kite Runner ... spent the rest of the day reading said book (at request of a colleague who wants to know if it's worthy of the senior course ... as far as i've gotten, i think it is ... for regulars & even honors ... but not AP) and cataloging a few books ... almost done ... and attending mass ... and reading some more and eating a bit & watching the end of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington ... and back up here to brush the cat, catalog some more books, and wonder where the day went ...

i wonder if his salt block will actually attract deer ...
i wonder if it will kill the tree it sits beneath ...
and i wonder if the deer will return in the spring seeking salt and finding only tulips ...

from thomas merton ...
We know when we are following our vocation when our soul is set free from preoccupation with itself and is able to seek God and even to find Him, even though it may not appear to find Him.  Gratitude and confidence and freedom from ourselves: these are signs that we have found our vocation and are living up to it even though everything else may seem to have gone wrong.  They give us peace in any suffering.  They teach us to laugh at despair.  And we may have to.

From No Man is an Island by Thomas Merton. Harcourt, Brace Jovanovich Inc., New York, 1955.
