Getting Unstuck

In Dante’s Inferno, Satan, denizen of the deepest hell, is found frozen in a block of ice, utterly unable to move. As anyone who has ever tried to quit smoking or eating junk food only to pick up that cigarette or that bag of crunchy or gooey things in a burst of wild rebellion can tell you, rebelling doesn’t necessarily bring freedom. Addictions—and this can include addictive emotions and obsessive thinking—is hell, a narrowing our possibilities. Freedom means working with life, caring for the body and the rest of creation, the middle path.

Getting Unstuck.

An observation

My younger daughter sent me out on a mission to find and buy a jogging stroller she found on Craig’s List. The lady asked me if my daughter had ever had a jogging stroller and I told her she has had numerous strollers of all sorts. I think it’s funny that my wife and I had two kids and only one stroller the whole time !
