Finally . . . A Post! :-)

Nothing for quite a while – no excuses (except for the normal ones – laziness, work and family commitments), so here’s an interview I did for a students a few years ago that I found floating around in my computer – enjoy! šŸ™‚ 1. What is one of your earliest memories about God/Jesus?The earliest memory […]

Galveston Vacation

Our Galveston vacation was cut short with the threat of flash flooding and tropical stom winds and rain, but otherwise it was fun. We did the beach, the pool, four-person bicycling, window-shopping, Moody Gardens, paddleboat ride, dinner at a tropical-rainforest-themed resteraunt, dinner at an excellent steak place, and catching up with my sisters. Blessings & […]

Vacation Time At Last :-)

I’ll be off to the coast for a few days, so my posting will be erratic. Granted, my posting has been erratic for quite some time, but at least this way I have a reason for the lack of posting, and I get to brag about going to the coast for vacation. Blessings & Peace,Hugo […]

The Blessings of Imperfection

Ever since I can remember I’ve set off fireworks on the 4th of July (and on New Year’s Eve), which, in my corner of the world, is against the law . . . has been since I was little (as far as I know and can remember). When we moved into our home 4 years […]

Happy Two-Year Anniversary

I just noticed that I’ve been on Blogger for two years this month! šŸ™‚ I’ve had stretches of lots of posts and stretches of no posts . . . hopefully I’ll keep this stretch going well! Da Vinci thoughts coming up soon! Blessings & Peace,Hugo

The Earring of Great Price

Another confession for me: my left ear is pierced twice. I’ve had it pierced since my freshmen year at college. I haven’t actually worn an earring in several years, and I know that one of my piercings has closed already . . . but the option’s there. šŸ™‚ I say this because last week at […]

Dark Night of the Soul

So I received a gentle prompt from kc, on my previous post, so here comes a more personal post then I may have posted before: I received a request from a parish in my area to do a confirmation retreat for them. [Theological note – feel free to skip: Confirmation is one of the sacraments […]

And My Primary Vocation Is . . .

Iā€™m reading a book called Sacrament of Sexuality: The Spirituality and Psychology of Sex by Morton and Barbara Kelsey. I found the following quote in a chapter discussing Sexuality, Love & Celibacy ā€“ I thought it a particularly insightful quote, so I thought Iā€™d pass it on to all ā€“ enjoy! šŸ™‚ We believe that […]


KC tagged me with this, so here we go! 1. How many books have I owned?Way too many . . . i quickly counted the books in our library (our spare bedroom!) and in other places around the house, and we’ve got around 400 books. However, that doesn’t count the many, many books we bought/acquired […]
