Venerable Pierre Toussaint


(from Catholic Heritage

"Pierre was born into
slavery on the island of
His master, Jean Berard,
encouraged the young Pierre
to learn to read and write.
Pierre was a house slave so
he escaped the brutality and
harsh work of the fields.
Pierre's mother and grand-
mother were devout Catholics
who passed their faith on to
Pierre and his younger sister,

Found Philosophical questions

regarding the Catholic Faith, answered by Dr. Richard Geraghty online: Faith: Catholic Q & A... Via EWTN's Q & A index

Cartoonist John Ewing

is a gentleman I recently learned about
through friend & author Barbara Beyer
Malley, as she has been looking for an
illustrator for the next published work of
her mother's poetry. I haven't , however,
been successful at copying & pasting (or
posting), the drawings Barbara has sent,
as I wanted to attempt & post at least a
page from a copy of his book:

The Cessna, The Sky....and the Cartoonist.

From Barbara:

"I discovered John Ewing... while looking
for an artist to illustrate my next series.
Noticing in his bio that he had a passion
for flying, I contacted him and sent him a
couple of my flying articles. He mailed me
a copy of his self-published book,
The Cessna, The Sky....and the Cartoonist.
The drawings and the text are both hilarious...

...In a section called "In Gratitude," John
ends with this: 'Being a Christian introduces
another element in my gratitude, too, for I
am aware that it is God who, as so often in
my past, provided the opportunities and
wherewithal to pursue this wonderful sport.
He was with me in it all the way. I am grateful
to Him.' "

Barbara also writes that John lives with his
wife Jenny in New Zealand, and worked for years
for Walt Disney as an animator. So as soon as I
can figure out how to do it, & with Mr. Ewing's
permission, I will happily post a copy of his work

& my many thanks to Barbara for sharing the info!

Happy Birthday, Barbara Beyer Malley!

Six years ago, in October of 2005, I received a comment on a post about my favorite childhood poem, The Laughing Willow, by Ernestine Cobern Beyer. I was thrilled to find that Ernestine's daughter Barbara had written - and so began a friendship that, technically, due to technology, is a reality today.

A Very Happy 90th Birthday, Barbara!!

And please comment (or email) on how your flight went yesterday, when you have the chance...

Too, visit Barbara's blog: Tears and Laughter at 90,

and her daughter, Dr. Kathleen Malley-Morrison's website:
Engaging Peace, for interesting, edifying, and entertaining insights from this very dear and gifted family.

Anybody know what's going on?
