tout comme avant

Mais l'habitant en rigolant
S'enfuit en courant dans son champ
Pendant qu'à bicyclette Ti-Jean
Reprit sa route en chantonnant tout comme avant...

~ Félix Leclerc, Contumace

'Perhaps the more “revolutionary” action is to discard what obstructs the spiritual quest' - I agree.

"The Holy Spirit who always sees the future as today." Great words. Thank you so much for the English translation, I would have been greatly disappointed to not have been able to read this post. Blessings to you today!

I like the picture with you on your bike. I ride my bike all the time. I worked as a bicycle mechanic for 2 years and built many fixed gear (Fixed gears you don't coast, it's single speed and the ideal messenger bike) bikes for friends and myself. And I see you have your messenger bag. I never left home with out mine.

"Yet I have an idea that when my endurance and struggles reach their heavenly end, I’ll continue on my blissful way, by bicycle and with rucksack filled with books and writing materials". This is such a beautifully peaceful image to me. Your writing continues to grow as you do. I'm so thankful to be able to stumble across your words so often. I'm sorry I have not commented in a while. I am always reading though!

I hope you are well. I was in Maine this past June and it was so beautiful. It made me long to live in a place that was quiet and filled with nature. Someday soon!

Take care-
