Our Human Journey

Seemed worth another look after nine months of gestating.

Pilgrim on a Long, Long Journey

“The human journey is a continuous act of transfiguration.” John O’ Donohue, who was an Irish poet, priest, and theologian. Merriam-Webster has two definitions of transfiguration: “a change in form or appearance” and “an exalting, glorifying, or spiritual change.

We see, if we have the privilege of aging, our physical metamorphosis. As O’ Donahue has noted, we never see our faces, ever. We only see their reflection.

Noses drop, eyelids sag, etc. But in most oldsters, wisdom has come with age. To the believer, it follows experience and delving into the ancient wisdom of the Scriptures.

May you find the richness of a life filled with the deep and memorable. May you reflect upon it in the winter of your content.

Another Drum

“He who marches out of line hears another drum.” Ken Kesey who wrote One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

I am in the rarest temperament type, INFJ. There are many times I will say something with a group and it will end the conversation.

The fewest physicians enter pathology. The rarest of pathologists do forensic pathology. That was me.

Lord knows I am different. That’s how I was made.

I am out there on that limb. At least it hasn’t broken……yet.
