Years ago when I first entered the cyber age, my very first email was unsolicited from Svetlana. She was writing from Russia and it is still a mystery how she turned out to be my first email contact. I did not respond to her for reasons that should be evident. But I thought she might be interested in some of the pieces of my life. So to all of the Svetlanas out there I am sending pictures and texts about the areas of life that give me hope and strength. These things are, I hope, life-giving for others out there in cyberspace.
Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, of whom I am one, reminds us to recall constantly those ideas, those relationships, those situations that have given us consolation. Some of what I have found consoling I offer here.
