the quotidian and the sublime

Terry and I don’t go to Ginger Café, our local South Asian restaurant, every Monday like we used to. I miss the hot and sour soup, but it’s about of Terry staying on track with Weight Watchers and about us spending less money eating out at a time when Terry’s commissions are lean.

We did have lunch at Ginger Café the Monday before Christmas. I enjoyed having the hot and sour soup again. But at the end of the meal, I opened my fortune cookie to read: “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”

Aside from the superfluous, perhaps even misplaced comma, I have to take exception with the entire sentiment. There is a middle ground. In his annual Christmas letter from the rectory Fr. Phil referred to the “quotidian and the sublime” in my blog. I like that. I know I have long written about both the trivial and those things that move me deeply. My blog started out focused on liturgical religion and spirituality, but I abandoned that restriction long ago. Perhaps my point being would have a larger readership if I stuck to a particular theme, but I write about what is on my mind, and what’s on my mind covers a wide variety of topics. Besides, I love and appreciate the readers I have.

So to begin the new year, I’m giving my blog a new subtitle (with thanks to Fr. Phil) and a new header image that reflects how closely my being is tied to power of the ocean.

And so I begin a new year of blogging in 2014!
