Very sad about the 100 degree heat. Poooor Jiminy. #pug #pugsofinstagram #heatwave #hotpug
About 5 years ago I very very very nearly became a NUN. I was dating a guy long term, I was teetering on the edge of becoming an atheist, but I met nuns all over the Lower Mainland, British Columbia and here in Southern California.
There was something really strange going on… like the last whimpers of my remaining catholic spirituality were sending me into a frenzy. I really felt these impulses, this strong unsettling urge, to be a nun.
Then, very slowly, imperceptibly, my spirituality melted away into this calm, serene, total lack of faith in anything. One day, staring out into the deep expanse of the Canadian wilderness on Christmas day, I realized there wasn’t a rumbling sensation in my core that indicated the presence of God. And I felt at peace for the first time ever.
But you have no idea how close I was! I passed the psych tests and physicals to become a postulant and had been ACCEPTED. I had my name picked out and everything.
** This isn’t the habit I would have worn as a postulant. This is an outfit I made for a comedy sketch I wrote… that veil is an old skirt.
Treble clefs by (L to R) Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, Debussy, and Ravel.
all musicians across all time periods: “fuck how does that thing go”
Beethoven didn’t even try
Debussy’s treble clef is adorable.
