    Not “fat.”

    Jolly.

    I have to agree with one of the comments at the Register. He needs to move closer to work or find a job closer to where he lives. I love train travel, but not so much for so long if you are working and trying to have a life.

    All I can say is………stunning advice. Just stunning.

    Sometimes I am tempted to think that my life has been wasted, that I never had an opportunity to develop the talents I was given because of a life-long struggle with depression and just trying to keep my head above water as far as my work is concerned. For this reason, I found the last paragraphs of Mark’s reply to this ex-seminarian and his quotes from Blessed JH Newman very helpful.
