Receiving the Day: Christian Practices for Opening the Gift of Time (The Practices of Faith Series)
In this spirituality of time, Dorothy Bass invites readers into a way of living in time that is alert to both contemporary pressures and rooted ancient wisdom. The celebrated editor of Practicing Our Faith asks hard questions about how our injurious attitude toward time has distorted our relationships with our innermost selves, with other people, with the natural world, and with God.
As an alternative to the rhetoric of management and mastery, Receiving the Day offers a language of attention, poetry, and celebration. Bass encourages us to reevaluate our understanding of the temporal and thereby to participate fully in the Christian practice of knowing time as God's gift. Embraced in this way, time need not be wrestled with each day. Instead, time becomes the habitation of blessing.
My Little Gay Pony:O)
Puffy Pete’s Pony. This is Fifi, Puffy Pete’s pony. You don’t think he (Pete) didn’t have one do you…a pony I mean (we know he doesn’t have one of ‘them’ what with him being smooth all over). Actually Pete got his pony first. He had to buy a pony after Pippa started to get suspicious when Pete bought her the poodle and then rather enthusiastically took it for a walk ‘on the common’ every night. So he needed a new alibi and after watching Bareback Mountain came up with the perfect solution. Get a pony! That way he could ‘go out riding’ all day long and Pippa wouldn’t suspect a thing. Only as it turns out, Pippa had always wanted a pony and she thought it was a great idea which would ‘promote a shared interest and create ‘common bonds’ that would strengthen the foundations of their [faltering] relationship and would help us grow stronger and blah blah blah ‘. Another Puffy Pete plot foiled (Go on…say that over and over really fast…I dare you). Anyway, the circus was in town and Puffy Pete witnessed the barbarity of circus dressage and managed to buy poor Fifi from his cruel owner. So Puffy Pete decided if he couldn’t have his little ‘outings’ he might as well do something about the pony’s hair. He spent a fortune on hair products (and pink hay) trying to get the poor boy’s course horse hair looking something like hair (say the last 8 words over and over again really fast) and getting a good stylist to make a home visit to a urine stained, straw floored stable up a country lane isn’t easy. Well…have you ever tried? Imagine the phone booking. “Do you make home visits?” “Yes…yes we do, where are you?” “The Old Meadows” “Is that a Rest Home?” “No, it’s more of a country house” “Oh…didn’t think Blackpool had any of those (we don’t by the way)” “It’s out by the abattoir”. “But there’s nothing out there but muddy fields, cow pats and those awful animal noises”. “Exactly, so you can understand why my pony needs something to make him feel special” “Erm…” “Do you have any wellie’s? Only if you don’t we have a spare pair. They’re size 10 and 12 because they’re one half of 2 pairs belonging to 2 different people. We’ve shoved some old socks in the toes and we find they tend to fit most people with a bit of toe jiggling. Oh…and one’s green whilst the other is pink and has flowers painted all over it by a friend who took the original pair to Glastonbury and only brought one back because she had swapped the other boot for half a toilet roll on day 2. And they have a hole at the top because apparently it was used in a welly drinking competition. We have no idea who the other boot belonged too! And they’re both right feet by the way. It can be a bit unnerving till you get used to it, but it doesn’t take long. Oh…and there’s no electricity up here so do you have a portable hairdryer that runs off batteries (he hadn’t quite grasped the finer complexities of the technical side of beauty care at that time)” Anyway, he didn’t manage to get a hair stylist to come out, but he did meet a friendly Rogue Taxidermist (Google it…it’s a real title…just DON’T look at the pictures…TRUST ME ON THIS but don’t complain to me if you do end up looking at the pictures…OK!) with a fantastic ability to bring his specimens back to life (not literally). Though he was one of those guys that even the abattoir men said was a bit ‘weird’. He kept hanging around the back entrance asking ‘have you finished with that?’ And he made Gunter Von Hagen look like Audrey Roberts”). Now with a bit of practice and experimentation, they managed to adapt some bottle blond industrial bleach and managed to dye Fifi’s hair a lovely shade called Golden Girl (Katsilk so it’s easy to curl). Oh, so the rest of the story. As it turns out, getting a pony was the best thing for Puffy Pete. Pippa got really busy with her Palitoy modelling career. There was the trouble with Pippa’s affair with Van; that incident with the boa constrictor in the elevator door; and we can’t talk about the Giraffe soup thing for legal reasons. Then the stables took on a new farm hand…Randy Ron. And from then on the world was pretty much sparkly for Puffy Pete. Pippa’s affair with Van gave him the perfect ‘get out clause’. He took a nice settlement at the divorce hearing agreeing to keep his trap shut about Van if Pippa gave him her shares in Palitoy. He cashed the whole lot in the year before the bankruptcy and made a fortune. He (Puffy Pete) bought Old Meadows and the abattoir, which he closed down. He built a luxury mansion (not on the abattoir site) but in the middle of the eco forest he planted on the land and opened up a pet cemetery which the friendly Rogue Taxidermist ran very successfully. They’re motto was ‘We’ll take ‘ANY’ pet: Nothing’s to big or small for us’. Puffy Pete and Randy Ron are now ‘life partners’ and had their Civil Ceremony in a Gold Medal winning exhibit in the category of ‘Best Cottage Garden’ at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2006. They have employed over 30 Easter
Royal Hospital Chelsea
Artizen HDR. The Royal Hospital Chelsea is a retirement home and nursing home for British soldiers who are unfit for further duty due to injury or old age, located in the Chelsea region of central London. There are just over 300 soldiers (310, as of 10 June 2004) resident in the Royal Hospital, referred to as "in-pensioners" (or more colloquially, as Chelsea pensioners). The grounds of the Royal Hospital have been the site of the annual Chelsea Flower Show since 1913. The Royal Hospital was founded by King Charles II, who issued a Royal Warrant authorising the building of the Hospital on 22 December 1681, in order to make provision for old or injured soldiers. Many of these soldiers, who were no longer fit for service, had been kept on regimental rolls so that they could continue to receive payment, because there was an inadequate provision of pensions for them. Sir Christopher Wren was commissioned to design and erect the building. His design was based on the Hopital des Invalides in Paris. The site for the Hospital was an area of Chelsea which held an incomplete building — "Chelsey College", a theological college founded by James I in 1610. The area had been donated by Charles II to the Royal Society in 1667, but since the Society had been unable to find a suitable use for the site, it was repurchased by the King in February 1682 to provide the site for the Hospital. Construction took place at a rapid pace and by the time of Charles II's death, in 1685, the main hall and chapel of the Hospital had already been completed. The first patients included those injured at the Battle of Sedgemoor. In 1686, Wren expanded his original design to add two additional quadrangles to the east and west of the central court. Work was completed in 1692, and the first in-pensioners were admitted in February 1692. By the end of March that year, the full capacity of 476 former soldiers were in residence. In 1694 a Royal Charter was established for a direct naval equivalent to the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Building began in 1696 on the Greenwich Hospital, and it opened in 1705. Because of its elevation, from 1796 to 1816 the Royal Hospital Chelsea hosted a station in the shutter telegraph chain which connected the Admiralty in London to its naval ships in Portsmouth. In 1809, Sir John Soane designed and constructed a new infirmary building, with space for 80 patients, located to the west of the Hospital building on the site of the current National Army Museum. The infirmary was damaged by bombing in the Second World War and later demolished.
