Today is good. I love the weather. For some reason I’ve always liked strong wind. I think it makes me feel free. However, the main reason is that I just got back from the doctor, who gave me lovely drugs that will make it easier for me to breathe! My athsma has been bugging me since I started to get sick two or three weeks ago. Trying to pick up the pieces I dropped when I ended up in bed for a week has kept me too busy to get to the doctor until today. (The Doc: You were too sick to go to the doctor?! Me: When I have to walk here? Yeah!) Now I have a prescription for a better inhaler and some pills that will short-circuit the inflamation cycle I’m currently in. I took the first dose as soon as I got back, and I can feel them work already. So it’s a good day.
There is currently one fly in my ointment. My two favorite theologians still alive are Christopher West and Stanley Hauerwas. I got to see Hauerwas speak at UD last St. Patrick’s Day, and I enjoyed him very much. Yesterday I found out that he’s coming back to UD again March 16. I was all excited until I went to put it on my calendar and realized that’s the night I’m presenting Lumen Gentium part II to my CL group. Argh!
I promised stuff about beauty, but I’m wimping out. The drugs make my chest feel a whole lot better, but they’re making it hard to think. So later for that… sorry.
