April Showers, Minnesota Style, and More (or Less)


(Wednesday morning, my webcam’s view. (April 14, 2021)

Minnesota’s April showers can be rain, snow, or anything in between. Tuesday afternoon and evening’s were snow, which was gone by Wednesday afternoon.

I gather that folks don’t generally talk about weather as much as we do here. Maybe that’s because we’re more rural than, say, New York City. Then again, maybe not.

At any rate, it’s neither raining nor showing at the moment — Thursday afternoon, April 15, 2021 in case your ‘today’ is my ‘tomorrow.’

At the moment, I’m taking a break from researching and writing a ‘Marlowe’s Faustus’ essay; and finally saying something about the Elizabethan play.

I’m also getting around to sharing photos I took during Lent.

The idea at the time was illustrating some point or other about prayer. And how we’re coping with the COVID-19 pandemic.


(Crucifix on this year’s Lenten chaplet prayer necklace. “Jesus Nazarenus Rex Judieorum” is a version of the Latin inscription on our Lord’s cross: usually represented by “INRI.”)


(A change in Adoration chapel rules last month. They’ve changed again.)

I still don’t know how I’ll start the next section in that “Faustus” thing. But It won’t get written if I don’t get back to working on it. After, I think, a cup of coffee.

Stuff that’s related to this, and some that’s probably not:
