Sick night

 I'm sick  with a monster sinus attack and feeling as limp as Hamlet's Ophelia.  Usually when this happens I just lie in bed in the dark until it passes and listen to music.Tonight I'm listening to a talk on taking religious topics out of context  by Professor William Biersach. He's an interesting fellow and has a pleasant voice. One thing that really struck me is his remorse about all the students he must have influenced back when he was outside of the Church and living as an atheist.  He had a rough time in his youth and there's an intense sadness behind his humor so I don't recommend him if you're looking forward to lighthearted romp. He starts out giggle and snort funny but gets very, very serious.

I hope you're feeling better soon.

Sinus troubles really are miserable. Prayers for a quick and full recovery.

Was the talk just him alone? I love this collection of audio at this website, LINK. It's both he and Charles Coulombe. They're a little snarky but good, traditional Catholic men.

Do you have a link to the talk you listened to?

"and feeling as limp as Hamlet's Ophelia"

I think that feeling may have been somewhat exaggerated.
