Remembrance again

It's warm and sunny; I've been out twice already, which is no small feat for me. Memorial Day can be hard. Though I've spent the day differently, emotionally it's similar to last year. This year, I think, a greater part of me wants not to remember, not to have the responsibility of remembering. It's a responsibility I can never fulfill as I should and can never run from as I'd sometimes like.

God, I'm so tired. My own running is making me so.

Had lunch with Meg, a farewell as she prepares for a two-year Peace Corps stint in Burkina Faso. Talked, among other things, about the difference between trying to make a difference and trying to be faithful. She will learn to do both, I predict. Could learn a lot from listening, really listening, to my own words.

expressedinword and taci have arrived, so I'm off.

The greatest enemy of the life of faith in God is not sin, but good choices which are not quite good enough. The good is always the enemy of the best.
