Psalms, Tea and Snow…

Beth quotes Roger Lipsey on Thomas Merton:

January 22, 1966:

“By mid-afternoon Merton was tired and distracted but psalms and tea and the silence of snow re-ordered everything.”


[from “The Art of Thomas Merton” by Roger Lipsey]

    Just a clarification – the quote is from Merton from his Journal, “Learning to Love”, p. 10. It was used with a brush drawing by Merton (that looks like a teapot). The drawing was in a book of Merton’s art which was compiled by Roger Lipsey.

    Thanks, Beth, for the correction. Keep up the thoughtful work!
