I have been seeing the images of Pope Francis on the news and on facebook. I have such mixed feeling about him. I like his humbleness and kindness and yet the church's stance and his stance on women's issues and gay issues is still too painful.
I am reading PURITY by Jonathan Franzen. The book is from the library. I accidently picked up the large print edition. The wait for the regular print is too long so I am struggling with the large print. It just doesn't feel right.
We had our neighborhood labor day party today just as the temperature was rising. hotter and hotter. We sat in the shade of the oak trees and talked. Once a year we meet ant talk and then the rest of the year we are busy.
