Soliloquy in an International Cloister

Watch your step as Brother Lawrence takes you inside the monastery walls of a five hundred year-old international order. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish you had ignored your hormones and joined the monastery.

My momma always said...

if you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all. Which is one of the reasons I have never said anything about our President, Mr. George W. Bush. I am deeply indebted, therefore, to Mr. Wellington Webb, the former mayor of Denver, who found something nice to say about Mr. Bush in his speech to the Colorado Democratic Convention.

"Mr. Bush," he said, "has single-handedly demolished the myth of white supremacy."

It's true. You can always find something nice to say about a person.

Wellington Webb is indeed impressive. I didn't realize your trip included the Convention - how is it?

Wellington is definitely one of the good guys.

I'm popping over from Claudia's, too. That's a very funny post. At least you can quote a dig at someone - works for me.

Welcome to all my first-time readers. What kind of pictures does Claudia have of you that she could blackmail you to read this blog?!

And also any myths about humans being higher on the evolutionary scale than the other animals.
