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.
