A Japanese Garden

There is a huge Japanese hotel in Tokyo called the new Otani which has a lovely 400 year old garden which is open to the public. We had a great day to walk around and enjoy the serenity of it. A look down at the ground floor of the hotel from the seventh floor. It was huge. I passed this rather morose looking group of people sitting in front of a Happy Easter sign. It just struck me funny so I took their photo though none of them noticed. The first look at the garden. K...

The Boston Bruins Need To Play Their Game

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, The Bruins need more pressure, more force against the Leafs along their rear wall, more playmaking low in the slot and at viable attack angles near the net. “I think that’s the biggest key to this series, the neutral zone, and it seemed they were coming with more speed tonight,” said Jake DeBrusk, noting Toronto’s ability to build speed in the middle, the product of quick outs. “I thought we brought the speed in Game 2, and they brought the ...

Ten Ways to Meditate on Christ’s Passion

Saint Ignatius of Loyola in the Spiritual Exercises — in the third week of the month retreat which is dedicated to the contemplation of the Passion of our Lord — accentuates the fact that Jesus suffered all in His Passion for me… This is very intimate and personal! In other words, instead of viewing the Passion from afar, Saint Ignatius brings it to us right now.  Jesus suffered all of the details of His bitter passion for me.  The Agony in the Garden; the scourging at the pillar; His crown...

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

I’m starting this month’s GBBD post (possibly the first one this year) with a favourite plant at the moment which I think is very overlooked, Lathyrus vernus; I also think the photo is rather nice.  This is the pink version but the most common is a blue/purple version.

When Jesus Sleeps Through Our Storms

During her own dark night of the soul, St. Therese was confident that Jesus was with her, but also distressed that He appeared to be asleep and hidden. As she describes it, [M]y soul was like a fragile skiff tossing without a pilot in a stormy sea. I knew that Jesus was there, asleep in my craft, but the night was too black for me to see Him. All was darkness. … Like Jesus during His agony in the Garden, I felt myself abandoned and there was no help for me on earth or in heaven. God had...

It might be time to let your garden grow wild

Think of a formal yard or garden, and you likely envision rows of neatly trimmed bushes along meandering walkways and sitting areas. Homeowners spend a ton of money, time and resources in an attempt to recreate that image. But another equally beautiful option for your home is a wild garden. What is a wild garden? A wild garden can carry a variety of definitions. For some, it means limiting the amount you tame your plants, letting them become what others might define as overgrown and unsight...

Designer Advice: Creating Image Boards That Fuel Design Ideas

Back in 2003, I was invited back to my alma mater, The Cleveland Institute of Art to give a talk hosted by the Industrial Design department. It coincided with a time when image searching on the internet was beginning to be a possibility. I wanted to cover a topic that wasn't formally taught in a class, but is a skill that arguably every designer across all disciplines relies on. I titled the presentation "Source" and it aimed to show some methods for kick starting ideas based on non-related imag...

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Footage Reaction: The Final Battle Against Thanos is Underway [CinemaCon 2019]

The culmination of 10 years and 21 movies worth of storytelling, Avengers: Endgame is unquestionably one of the most anticipated movies of the year. And as we near closer to the film’s late April release date, Marvel Studios keeps sharing just enough footage in its trailers and marketing to keep us excited. But not nearly enough to calm fans who were left traumatized by the ending of last year’s Avengers: Infinity War. /Film’s own Peter Sciretta and Ben Pearson are attending CinemaCon is Las Ve...

The Blessed Sacrament and the Blessed Virgin

St. Francis of Assisi loved France because the sacred Host was more venerated there than in any other country in the world. It is remarkable that in spite of the spread of worldliness and irreligion, the Eucharist has been more and more glorified and honored from century to century. The Eucharistic life of Christ has developed in the world as did His human life on earth. Jesus began to breathe in the seclusion of an obscure workshop and rose gradually to infinite glory. Likewise, the first Chris...
