Monday, Monday

So today is a rare Monday off for me ... it's Cesar Chavez Day -- a holiday here in California celebrating the witness and work of the original "si se puede" guy-- so the parish offices are closed and it's really quite wonderful to have a day to "breathe into the week."

Particularly wonderful in a week coming which will take me to New Hampshire for a three day meeting with the Claiming the Blessing Steering Committee (looking to Lambeth and beyond) and then back here to preach on Sunday and gear back up to head to NYC for the Anglican Covenant Conference at the Desmond Tutu Center and, oh yes, a Canterbury Campaign gathering on April 12th with NYC folks.

But that's in the week to come.

Today is a going to the dog park/getting household stuff done/in time to settle in and watch the Dodgers open the season against the Giants at Dodger Stadium. (Go, Blue!)

But before we launch off into the day, here are a couple of "favorites" from last week:

Favorite photo on the blogosphere (from Fr. Jake):

Favorite quote from the Sunday papers: (NYT Magazine interview w/former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill):

Q. Do you feel bitter about your service in the Bush administration?
A. No. I'm thankful I got fired when I did, so that I didn't have to be associated with what they subsequently did.

Happy Monday, Everybody!
(Si, se puede!)

It sounds like it was a great day at the ballpark. I wish I could have been there. Koufax looked to be in good enough shape to suit up. I will be going to Wrigley Field, Chicago in July, though, for the first time.
