If this weblog were a house, I would be sweeping the front walk and brewing a pot of tea as I awaited your arrival.
If this weblog were a journey, I would be checking the tires and preparing sandwiches for the road.
At the risk of mixing metaphors, this weblog will be both home and journey – a place of welcome where we can share our Benedictine charism with our on-line guests, and a point of departure as we explore and reflect upon the passing landscape of our monastic life.
The sidewalk is swept. The road is waiting. Welcome.
