News from The Small Plot

On Monday afternoon, we gathered at The Small Plot in Three Brooks where we were welcomed by Sisters Mary Corbett and Becky McKenna. After a short prayer, Becky proceeded to review the Chapter process with us through words and pictures.

The exchange that took place among the sisters at Chapter provided a richness which made all of us proud to belong to this gathering of women. A further proof of this was obvious in the smooth flowing of the election process resulting in the election of a gifted group of women. Our heart and prayer accompanies them as they embark on this onerous undertaking.

After socializing and enjoying a delicious lunch, we were sent on our way with a bag of garden fresh vegetables and a bottle of jam, all the product of their hard work!

Ice and Sky

A must-see movie produced by Luc Jacquet (March of the Penguins) which recounts the story of Glaciologist Claude Lorius who volunteered to go on a trip to Antarctica at the age of 23 and now, at 82, is retracing the steps of his many journeys that followed. His inquisitive, scientific mind recognized that, the presence of air bubbles in the ice cubes of his drink he was enjoying after a hard day in the extreme cold, had a profound significance. Thus began his journey into the depths of the polar ice fields gathering data and making the connection between the presence of air bubbles and the impact of human activity on earth’s climate over thousands of years. It is a powerful, fascinating story.

Chapter Memories

For me, a Chapter memory and highlight is my table group. We were Table #5 and we were great. All tables were bilingual tables and Table 5 was Spanish-English. We were aware of differences in what words meant, deeper meaning than simple translation might imply. Being sure we each spoke, allowing our ideas to be influenced by others. I still wonder what interculturality means for me locally but Table #5 showed me what's possible and I am grateful. Thanks!
