The Discreet Traveler

Dear Readers,

I've heard a lot of helpful recommendations in this brave new year, but one of the most important is to support artists and the arts. Buy music you love. Read good books. Share your art with people you care about, if not people you don't yet know.

Taking this to heart, I've been blogging again. About Scotland, the "special relationship" between Britain and America, plus some exciting plans we have for traveling later this year.

Thanks for reading. Take care of yourselves and each other.

A Franciscan Benediction

May God bless you with discomfort: at easy answers, at half-truths, and superficial relationships; so that you may live deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger: at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace.
May God bless you with tears to shed: for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.
