"The human ego prefers anything, just about anything, to falling or changing or dying."

Book haul from my church's bookshop - a VERY generous gift from my pastor. Now to carve out a bit of time daily to read each of these and work intentionally on my spiritual growth again.

What‘s pink and white? This handful of Cadbury eggs. And read all over? This book, as soon as I get those eggs out of the way.
(Fine. It‘s a reach, and I‘ve cross-contaminated my holidays. But #pinkredandwhite ✅)

I just had a conversation with somebody saying he didn‘t read fiction much anymore, found himself saying, “Well, that didn‘t really happen.” That kind of thinking grieves me. This is what fiction is for: capturing truth and meaning that transcends mere events.

Rohr explains the two halves of life and, in particular, the spiritual journey of the second half of life. I have read better material from Rohr and was somewhat disappointed as the material seemed a bit disjointed. But his descriptions of what older folks find themselves pursuing and enjoying (solitude, contemplation, reflection) was spot on for me and let me know I wasn‘t alone in my current desires and activities.
