John Patrick says I should read Gerald Manley Hopkins poetry, memorize the Beatitudes and memorize the Sermon on the Mount. I've done my best to read "The Wreck of the Deutschland" but as a migrainogenic activity it rates right up there with trying to learn Russian.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

I was also out of the country and away from the computer at the time. I couldn't respond to the traffic, and the blog withered away and died a quiet death, never to be missed.
That was fine with me.
My blogging now is largely to record thoughts and musings. I have few original thoughts and musings, so I will be quoting and perhaps commenting on things I read or learn throughout the day. I'm hoping this will force me to ponder at least one new or interesting thing I learn over the next few years, or until I lose interest in blogging.
Given my attention span, this blog may not survive the year.
This is a kitty blog because I intend to post a picture of my cat in the near future.
It could have been a God blog, but you have to be pretty smart and devout to run one of those and I'm not those things. It could have been a Doc blog, but medicine gets enough of my time as it is. It couldn't have been a cycling blog; Fat Cyclist and Bike Snob have cornered the market on that genre for now. Political blogs are out of the question, and anyway they are a dime a dozen.
I hope you enjoy it.
The abdomen is the reason why man does not easily take himself for a god.
Insofar as I've made a career of dispensing Nexium and hyoscyamine, I should be held complicit in the relentless secularization of our culture.
