walking on sunshine

Norman Rockwell:  He's Going to Be Taller Than Dad, 1939

"i'm walking on sunshine , wooah
i'm walking on sunshine, woooah
i'm walking on sunshine, woooah
and don't it feel good!!!"
(Katrina and the Waves - Walking on Sunshine, 1985)
after jumping in, i find myself measuring the progress (picture = Norman Rockwell: He's Going to Be Taller Than Dad, 1939). i think it's a bit early to do that, for obvious reasons -- i'm a new baby priest! i need to give myself some time before i can change the world. i need to drink milk before eating meat. the other realization i have come across is that i will not change the world, rather God will do all the transforming. all i can change is my heart.

like Katrina and the Waves though, i am walking on sunshine. despite the mysteries of the road less traveled by, i am at peace for the first time in a long time. so, yesterday, my day off, i decided to live it up. not one, but two sports. i played an hour or so of ultimate frisbee with the gang on Parliament Hill. then, after a short break, drove up to Orléans to play squash. i lost, both games. oh well. who's counting though? oh, possibly the youth at Annunciation of the Lord parish. i've been hearing there is ultimate frisbee every monday night as well. well i'm practising, hopefully i can keep up with you all!

i'm off to prepare the wedding i'll have on Saturday. peace out!
