Making my Christmas List

Making my Christmas list already. How about you? .

One meaningful person will lead you to the next. I was introduced to Thomas Merton through the writings of Richard Rohr. Ever since I read the Bible I can’t seem to go too long without reading something with a rich spiritual foundation, or I seem to lose my connection to the wonderful spiritual (otherworldly) dust that floats in the ether all around us and within us. I love novels and secular historical reads but have to supplement it with theological works lest I die of thirst.

Idylls of the King by Alfred Lord Tennyson

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Idylls of the King by Alfred Lord Tennyson is an epic poem about King Arthur and the Knights of the round table. They search for the Holy Grail which is an allegory for material possessions. SPOILER ALERT: most only find wandering fires. 🔥 😉

Yes, I read this. And would probably read it again! 💕

I loved the musical ‘Camelot’, used to pretend to conduct its orchestra when I was a little girl—I know, I’m a total nerd!
