Okay, so you can see, I'm figuring out how this might work... A few pictures I took the first weekend I was here...
First, my house. I wish I had taken this from the side so that you could see some of the lovely gardening that Liz does. We have great flowers with some veggies kind of mixed in there. The two windows on the top right are where my room is.
This next picture is of my room. Lots of windows, some flowers that were there to welcome me when I arrived. The carpet is very green, but I love it. Familiar quilt and stuff, so like home already.And this last picture is of the falls where I spent part of a day the weekend I arrived. Minnesota is known for its lakes, so I thought I might as well take advantange while the weather was warm. I thought the weather would be a bit warmer a bit longer than seems to be the case here, but so far the sun is shining and I am plenty warm.
Last night was my first class: "Two Centuries of Feminist Theological Creativity" (or something like that). It was interesting to hear from the women who have maybe felt more restricted in various parts of life because of being a woman. Not only did I not live before or through Vatican II, but I was in the first class of girl altar servers at my grade school. In terms of education and ministry, I don't feel like there is anything I can't do because I am a woman, which is not the experience of many of the women in my class. Much of it will be an integration of, what is for me, history adding to that the piece on what comes next. I think there will be lots to learn.
Well, I'd better get some lunch so I can get to some real work.
Thank God for the sun!
