Hello Pamela and all,
I've been making progress on my philosophy, especially "how to live". The main idea is that we are ever choosing between (just) "living" and "growing" (spiritually). Life is the fact that God is good. But if we want to grow, then that happens when we sense that life isn't necessarily fair, God isn't necessarily good. So our growth happens precisely in this mode of troubles.
I spent five days at a Lithuanian folk dancing camp.
We are still painting my house. The weather is better for that now.
I'm also writing an article about Bronys Raila, a Lithuanian who, sadly, wrote anti-semitic propaganda as part of Lithuania's anti-Soviet rebellion, which contributed to the Holocaust. He was recently reburied in Lithuania without consideration of his misdeeds.
Here is a bouquet of flowers from my yard.
