0 to 60

I sat in Mass, and my mind was revolving over and over on itself in endless whirls and circles.

So many things.
And then silence.
And I just smiled, because I was sitting in front of the One Thing. And despite the hurricane of life whirling outside the chapel doors, I had found peace in the eye of the storm. And as long as you have that peace and silence, then the hurricane is exciting and exhilarating.
"But only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."
-- Luke 10:42
