Young and Collared - In her own words: Trying to hear God speak in daily life, through my experience as a twenty-somthing young woman on her way (God willing!) to ordination. There will be a quiz later to determine who checked out her blog. Because if you do then you will know what 'Diwali' is.
Common Places - In her own words: Random mutterings of an overeducated bibliophile and sometime theologian. Go check out her 'thankful' list.
Let's see now... who shall we meet... How about Christine Valters Paintner!

At The Sacred Art of Living ( http://sacredartofliving.wordpress.com/)

What is your favorite sound?
The deep and longing notes of a solo cello
Describe a perfect day in your world.
Sleeping in, fresh fruit for breakfast and a pot of Irish Breakfast tea, recording my dreams and time for writing and journaling, playing with art materials, stretching slowly, relishing silence, going for a long hike with a good friend, a warm bath with dead sea salt, a nourishing dinner of fresh fish and vegetables, watching a movie with my beloved and then snuggling until we fall asleep.

Make more and more time for writing, for art, for dreamwork, for hiking, for cooking, for being.
Peace, friends and prayers for Songbird and Reverend Mommy and hubby. All three are battling nasty illnesses. Blech!
