I am thankful that today is a Feast Day and that means I have some leverage...no work, no dessert. That includes the main celebrant! Even the most paltry attempts at a treat usually end up producing the desired result. They're out there now, working on their version of a pumpkin still life.

"We must," says he, "look upon all the things of this world, as none of ours, and not desire them. This world and that to come are two enemies. We cannot, therefore, be friends to both; but we must resolve which we would forsake, and which we would enjoy. And we think, that it is better to hate the present things, as little, short-lived, and corruptible; and to love those which are to come, which are truly good and incorruptible. Let us contend with all earnestness, knowing that we are now called to the combat. Let us run in the straight road, the race that is incorruptible."
We are blessed.
