My brother was in town this weekend, so I had the opportunity to talk with him about my options in real estate.

I spent the weekend looking at condos by the beach in this area. My brother pointed out that if I was looking for a bargain, I should go a little further north along the coast where the market was even more depressed and would get even more for my money. He was right, there are some real bargains to be had on the coast about three hours north of here.

In the end, however, it came down to not just finding a bargain, but where I actually wanted to live. I imagined myself buying a place here and then when autumn came staring at the sea and wishing I was watching the leaves change. So I've decided to be at peace with my decision to move out west, specifically the Lake Tahoe area. Now I will focus on finding a job out west. My goal is to move by September so I have five months to find a job. I realize that in the end job opportunities may not come from Tahoe, I may get another one from the Denver market.

So, one decision has been made: my intention is to find a job and a house in the Lake Tahoe area. I hope that I will be able to find the successful combination of my intention and the realities of the job market, I will remain open to the best outcome.

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a growing emptiness in my heart. A void, as if something is missing. It’s not psychological. Not physical. After doing an internal check, I determined it’s a spiritual void that I’m experiencing.
No, I’m not doubting God, his existence or goodness. I have full confidence in…

Open to the Spirit - Book Review

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Simple Spinach and Kale Fettucine

On Wednesday I picked up my first box of organic from the High Country Conservation Center’s Summit CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Way back in February, I bought a ‘share’ in this summer’s crop, which entitles me to a weekly box of organic vegetables from mid-June through October.




Now that the vegetables have arrived, I have two reactions: 1) Wow! This is so exciting! Look at these beautiful vegetables, I’m going to be so healthy. 2) Yikes! What am I going to do with four bags of greens?









For the next sixteen weeks, I want to share my culinary adventures as I cook my way through my CSA box each week. Even if you don’t subscribe to the CSA share, you’ll enjoy these recipes which focus on our summer bounty. I hope you’ll also be inspired to try more vegetable-centered meals. Now, back to those four bags of greens! 


This week’s recipe polished off two of the bags immediately. You can make this easy and tasty recipe for two or four people, just increase the amount of greens and th…
