15 March 2013

Congee: yesterday’s cold coffee carefully hoarded: lovely email from Social Security which at long last identifies the need to file a form with the receiving bank so I can start the payments. Rereading Much Ado About Nothing. Butt pain in the usual place. We Catholics believe in Purgatory; Father Tito suggested yesterday that I could offer the various pains of this up as a form of Purgatory.

  1. That’s a good suggestion, a way to make the pain more meaningful, and perhaps therefor more bearable. We have a similar practise in Buddhism, where we imagine that through our own suffering we are taking on and relieving the suffering of others. I find it really powerful. Take care.
