My stats show that few if any people ever stumble upon these posts.
I am not worried – I am trying to re-kindle a habit of posting several times a week on topics that I enjoy.
Am currently listening to Falling Upwards by Richard Rohr.
Around the 3 hour mark he says
The gospel was able to accept that life is tragic but then graciously added that we can survive and will even grow from this tragedy.This is the great turnaround. It all depends on whether we are willing to see down as up or as Jung put it – that where you stumble and fall there you find pure gold. Lady Julian put it even more poetically – First there is the fall and then we recover from the fall. Both are the mercy of God.
What a lovely Autumn day to take a walk to the Esplanade here in Palmerston North. Mac was on the look out for cats so kept pulling and walking ahead while on the streets. Once we gained the Esplanade he relaxed and enjoyed the bush environs, smells and sights.
Until we came across two rabbits lolling about. They were in no hurry to escape as we came upon them but Mac took a run and almost pulled my wrist off my arm. He barked and looked at me as if to say I should let him off leash. Sorry Mac – not in the Esplanade!
We finished off with a swim along the Dittmer Drive stretch of the Manawatu River where we came across some yappy small dogs. They are not fun.
Had a lovely visit today from a thrush. It tracked me in the garden scratching and prodding in the earth where I had been. I even tossed it a couple of snails which it takes to concrete or bricks and then proceeds to flick its head and wallop the shell until it breaks.
