Orwell's scenario twenty-five years later ...

This is a reprint of an e-mailed message which I received from my daughter today. She was born in 1984, the year which is also the title of George Orwell's prophetic novel. Sometimes life imitates art...

" Look at where they're telling people to report anything about the "health insurance reform" that "seems fishy":

Big Brother..."

And I will add my words to hers:

We have nothing to fear. For "if God be for us, who can be against us?" And Our Blessed Mother is just a prayer away.

"In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph."

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for our country.

He loves me...

He loves me,
I love him not.
I had forgotten all about him
until now.
I"ve lived quite happily without him.
What should I say?
Should I tell him once again
he's not for me?
There is nothing there between us
and cannot be.
Why won't he see?
He is free to choose another.
Why does he still want me?


"Pure love and suspicion cannot dwell together: at the door where the latter enters, the former makes its exit."

--Alexandre Dumas

And his heart said...

"I wished for nothing beyond her smile, and to walk with her thus, hand in hand, along a sun-warmed, flower-bordered path."

--Andre Gide
