What I Really Really Want

I am so jealous.  Benedict's representation of his feelings as "of profound serenity' provides an occasion of sin.  Who would not like to helicopter off to Castel Gandolfo and devote their time to reading, writing, contemplation, and walking in the garden (and what a garden) dressed in an intricately buttoned and embroidered, long, white dress, and fur-lined velvet cape against any lakeside chill.

Benedict XVI has chosen to begin his reading with von Balthasar

Oh well, shopping to unpack, lunch to cook, plants to water at the ecohouse, firewood to bring up, load of washing to run.....

Yours looks like a good deal, too. Happily occupied.
