Metablogging: December 2003 Archives

Next Scheduled Reading

| | Comments (5)

Due to a head cold or sinus infection or some other clogging of the brain, I've been unable to come to a conclusion regarding which extended text I would next like to consider. Because I've already subjected you to one that is not Catholic, I thought the better part would be to give equal or more time to a Catholic Source. It would be better for it not to be too long (say Imitation of Christ long) and that it treat of prayer or Christian Life and not explicitly of theology (for which I can provide no real insight). Are there any opinions? I may be casting around for a few days looking for just the right thing, but once settled upon, I'd like to continue the extended treatment because I found it gave me a few moments every day in prayer as I read and commented upon the text.

I was thinking about the Sayings of Light and Love but the problem with that is that they are something like the Sayings of the Desert Fathers in that each one requires an extended meditation and consideration. It would be quite easy to get lost in the huge morass of them. On the other hand. . .

Perhaps we could give some consideration to Brother Lawrence's Practice of the Presence of God

Let me know if you have any opinions or considerations. (In case you can't tell, I really like the structure of extended consideration, and I don't think it necessarily detracts from other things that may from time to time arise.)

Otherwise it sounds like idle boasting to little or no purpose. The point was that I would greatly appreciate it if any newcomers to this blog who have their own would drop me a line to let me know about their blogs as now I have no means of finding them.

I'll need to figure out where to post that on my blog as a permanent message.

Removal of Sitemeter

| | Comments (3)

With the removal of Sitemeter, the page should load more quickly.

I have long contemplated this, reluctant to remove it because I have found so many very good sites by tracing back through Sitemeter. But the time has come to abandon it--I may be slower about finding those of my visitors who choose not to comment, but I will not have the burden of checking the Sitemeter readings and of allowing it a certain measure of control over my actions.

Like sin, some things once abandoned open up great worlds of possibilities. This is one of those ventures.
