I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

La La La... The Music that Makes Me Dance

iTunes had a sale this week: "Albums We Love" for $6.99.

I wasn't going to look...but then I saw "La La Land" and decided to make the purchase.

I've had it on repeat on my phone the past couple of days. It's so catchy - some so upbeat and some downright melancholy.

I just might have danced around in my kitchen to the opening few numbers. (No judgment, please.)

I love music.

I thought about the idea of being blind versus being deaf (which is not a new idea) - which would I prefer? Well, I would not willingly choose either of them because both are such spectacular gifts to be able to use, seeing and hearing. But honestly, to live without hearing music or people's voices - for me, that would be harder than not seeing things.

Music makes me so happy - my heart feels lighter and my soul is happy. I just want to dance when there is a good beat or strong melody. It's hard to explain...yet it would be even harder to replace or live without.

Tra la la la la...let the beat go on...
