The Soul Walks Upon All Paths

Say not, "I have found the truth,"
but rather, "I have found a truth."

Say not, "I have found the path of the soul,"
Say rather, "I have met the soul
walking upon my path."

For the soul walks upon all paths.
The soul walks not upon a line,
neither does it grow like a reed.
the soul unfolds itself,
like a lotus of countless petals.

~Kahlil Gibran

Of Note: Seems the Roman Catholic Church is beginning to face its dark past. The Church Fathers acted as if it was all over when the sex scandals exploded in the United States 10 years ago, and the victims were paid off with the hard earned donations of its congregations. Come to find out, the Church hierarchy knew all along that the scandals went deep into the belly of the Church on a global scale and did little about it. Shame on them. Now, there will be no going back to an illusion of holiness. The Pope is currently visiting the UK and is apologizing for the abuse at every turn. Many Brits are sporting t-shirts with the words "Nope Pope" for many reasons but the sex abuse scandal is at the top of the list. Where the Church goes from here is anyone's guess but it will be an interesting "Watch" from the standpoint of an Observer.

Today's Weather Report: Wow, the sun has never looked more gorgeous after many days of clouds and rain. But the look is deceiving because it is currently only 42 degrees Fahrenheit outside. That will not stop me from venturing forth and finishing the painting project at the hunting cabin, which got a new door this week. The new entryway should take care of the last big leak. Our roofer certainly hopes so since he has been out repeatedly to fix several of them. We thought the rubber roof would do it last fall, but no, many other leak problems complicated the picture. No big deal, just want to finally scratch this off my list for the year, particularly since it was a 2009 carry-over. After all, we are talking about a leaks at a hunting cabin while many Pakistanis go homeless after devastating floods.
