  1. Hi Adam, This is delightful! How did you keep picking up hats on your left and throwing them off to your right? Being blessed by confusion is not such a bad place to be.

    • Thanks, Patti. And best blessings on your forthcoming graduation. Did anyone tell you about the master-of-divinity superpowers? They should be kicking in any day now!

  2. We were once on a cruise ship that presented a stage show based on HMS Pinafore. Several of the ship’s performers were British, as is common, one of whom joined us for a cocktail. I found myself explaining the comedy to a Brit – how the Captain, the Captain’s daughter, Little Buttercup, the First Lord of the Admiralty, et al, all fit together in a mockery of English class society.

    • Heh. I guess we post-imperial nations all have to learn to balance our pride with some self-deprecating humor. Maybe that’s where The Merry Mystic comes from: the self-deprecating humor of post-Christendom.

  3. Wonderful Adam. This is water to a blind man’s ears! You offer bread and light to the sheep of the true vine!
