A book is a literary compass that has the potential to direct our thoughts and actions:

"Everything we read stimulates our mind to think, and what we think determines what we desire, and desires are the seedbed of our actions. Given this iron law of human nature--from reading to thinking, to desiring, to acting--we are shaping our destiny by the ideas we choose to have enter our minds through print." - Fr. John Hardon, S.J., The Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan

Welcome to my own personal exploration of life through reading the great books of the world.

Trip to Notre Dame, Day 1

I woke up this morning in Sheridan, Wyoming, after driving about 660 miles from Spokane, Washington yesterday with 13 teenagers, and 7 chaperones. Highlights of our first day of travel:
  • Stopping at Lincoln, Montana's 10,000 Silver Dollar Bar
  • Attending Mass in Billings, MT with my parents. The young priest at St. Pius X Parish went to school with the deacon I wrote about a couple of months ago.
  • Chasing a huge electrical storm across southern Montana. I really enjoy watching Montana thunder storms, but not while driving through them. One of the minivans in our group was struck by lightning. Everyone was fine, but they were a bit shaken up.
Today we head across South Dakota to Mount Rushmore and then on to Minnesota before arriving at Notre Dame tomorrow night.

I'll keep updating as time and technology allow. Thanks for all your prayers.

Visiting this entry almost a year later to tell you we will be on our way to ND Vision in June....but luckily, we only have a 3 hour drive.

Thanks for encouraging our participation through your blog entries last year!

That's great, Maureen! We're going again this year, but we're going to take the train, and my other son is going too. We're going the week after the Fourth of July. Too bad we won't be at the same session. I hope it's a great week for you.
