Why is this a blogue?

  • Why is this a blogue, not a blog? It’s just an old-fashioned touch that harkens back to less-hurried (and harried) times, when a letter took a while to get delivered, and a reply took a while longer. When books were savored for their precious rarity. When news came in slowly for the most part and could be thoughtfully considered. A rapid-fire flow of constant info-junk tends to make me twitchy. When you visit my blogue, I invite you to take a nice deep breath, absorb things a little at a time, wander in a serendipitous fashion, and generally remember that even in the ultra-speedy world of the Internet, you control the pace of your life.

Question: will these rosaries hold up to heavy usage if fingered in the traditional way? Thanks, Susan


Good question, Susan! The rosaries should stand up to normal gentle use. They are intended to be worn as necklaces if you wish, and many women do so, which is probably harder usage than simply running them through your fingers. If your rosary should pull apart, it's easy to put it back together again. I've only had a couple return to me for repairs, one of which looked like it had exploded -- still not sure what was being done with that one! :-)

Tarot Card of the Week

  • Moon

    When the planet turns its face toward the dark, our nocturnal nature draws us out into the realm of Moon. This is a dominion of dreams that we explore with our senses fully awake. The subconscious spills into consciousness, allowing us to see what is not revealed by sight alone. Strange sounds come to our ears, intoxicating perfumes reach our noses, things appear that only emerge in darkness. We creep softly, following our moonshadows over the colorless world.
