A quiet spot...


I wonder if – when I finally get to see the original blueprints of the manor house – it’ll have a chapel. I know many large houses in Catholic countries do – a place to light a candle and basically just sit and reflect on life and spirit...

If it has, I’d like to restore it. Not because I am Catholic, but because I have a passion for all things really worth-while. My Protestant blood hesitates at hanging a crucifix on the wall, though, as to me the Cross is empty. After all, Christ was removed from the cross on the very same day He died, and the empty cross means more to me than might meet the eye... It’s a symbol of a Risen Lord... So yes, maybe an ornately decorated EMPTY cross will do...

I had the pleasure and privilege of attending my brother’s wedding this Easter Weekend, and it made me reflect on my relationships, past and present. I’d like to meet and marry someone special, too. Maybe I know him already, or maybe he waits in my future somewhere... And I’d like to gather my friends and relatives around to celebrate with me, with good food and fine wine...

Oh, well...

Back to the topic...

Many, many moons ago, I spent some money on a psychologist who taught me the skill of self-hypnosis. I have found deep within me a quiet place, where I sometimes go to sort stuff out. Haven’t been there for a while, though – maybe I should visit more often!

And the sooner I sort out the issues currently bugging me, the sooner I’ll find a Significant Other to share my life with! That’s a good deal, in any currency, methinks...
