A Few Words and Anotha Cuppa is an occasional series focused sometimes and more often than not casual, informal, a little ranting or a simple stroll down memory lane (mostly but not always) in a stream of consciousness, rambling kind of way.
A few words and anotha cuppa: A rambling ramble about books, binge-watching sci-fi on TV, my favorite Bibles and a nice cup of tea. First post in the occasional series, which needs no real occasion to spring forth from my flighty little mind and fidgety little fingers and onto the screen. June 6, 2019.
A few words, a cuppa and anotha: A couple of personal updates and something I found on the web about Christians, even Catholic religious who should know better, falling for Reiki. I asked for people to share any accounts they may have of their brushes with Reiki or about any religious they know who are into it. (No names or personal details, please, just what kind of order they’re in and any anecdotes you care to share). June 26, 2019
Our First Cuppa Together in 2020: We’ve talked about conversion before and I mentioned that I gave up my New Age ways, and I think I mentioned astrology. I gave it up, not because it doesn’t work (that’s a topic for a whole other blog post), but because Holy Mother Church said to. But I didn’t give it up right away. Now this is not a post about astrology or my past obsession with it, but about the fact that becoming Catholic changes us. It must change us, the deep down us, and that takes time. February 4, 2020
(More than) a few words and anotha cuppa: What it’s like to live with sarcoidosis and also how it’s similar in some ways to COVID-19. Only similar, I know COVID-19 is far worse. April 6, 2020
A few words and another cuppa, let’s talk a while: About why you should or shouldn’t listen to me. After all, who the heck am I? Nobody special. April 20, 2020
Weekly series on the soul, Part 23, does double duty with Anotha cuppa with some over-lapping of categories and themes. June 4, 2020
Anotha cuppa and some Rosary art: I want to share with you some words about a painting you may have seen if you’ve watched the Rosary led by Mother Angelica on EWTN. Includes a short verse inspired by the painting. June 22, 2020
Anotha cuppa and some new used books: This is the first rambling ramble of the new year. Just sitting by the virtual fireside, looking through some of my new used books, with a side of videos about St. Edith Stein (St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross). January 10, 2022
