A long weekend back in Chicago is done. It is time to return to routine again: up early, writing, biking to work, working, biking home, It is a routine I can settle into quite easily.

I came across an interesting book at the Pauline Bookstore in Chicago called The Franciscan Heart of Thomas Merton, by Daniel P. Horan. As I have said here before, it seems clear to me that the message of St. Francis is more urgent today than ever before in a society that worships wealth and violence above all else. It was a book I could not pass up.

I also picked up another Hayden Carruth volume.

Here are some pictures from my trip to the Windy City to watch a Dead and Company concert.

  1. I see the pedipopes right hand man is off to trial in Australia. We have a neurosurgeon who was rounding up nurses around the country and Australia to have their children. Trump is having doj round up low level pedophiles to turn over the pedophiles that run the churches, corporations, governments. CIA has blackmailed EVERYBODY they need to run deep state govt.
    America has to fail to bring in one world govt. Our govt is run by global corps. Or in other words people who are foreigners from foreign countries. It is the Clinton’s/globalist/democrat/neocons who are in bed with Russians. If you think you are getting truth think.about this. BLACK BUDGETS( the SR71 plane is supposedly the fastest plane mach 4 or 5. That was made in 1955. With a black budget and govt secrets what do you really think they have made in the last 60 years with computers?
    I think Brownie was trying to tell me by watching General Hospital that the govt is putting on a stage play. Once you see the news media caught lieing you sit back and see how orchestrated life has a news junky I always wondered how there are 6 billion people in the world 5 news stations owned/run by 5 people and they ALWAYS TELL THE SAME 5 STORIES?
    as far as old white guys I would remind my nieces that old white guys.started this civilization,invented the car they drive, the phone attached to their head and THEM! By the way chem trails gone since trump in office. Trump is not the enemy. He is surrounded by cia controled deep state fighting to prevent global takeover.
