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.

On April 1 of this year, Soliloquy turned five years old. Sometime around the end of June or early July, it passed 10,000 visits. That works out to an average of 2000 visits a year, which isn't even a blip on Google's radar. Surprisingly, people aren't interested in reading the same posts over and over for months at a time. Maybe I should try a new strategy.

A ringing endorsement

Brother Bernard is a member of a jazz band that performs an annual concert in a local prison, among other gigs. Asked for his reaction to this year's concert, one inmate remarked, "It is two hours out of the prison."

Take that, Chick Corea!
