Well, maybe not require, but it is surely wonderful to sit next to it, alternately reading the Sunday paper and doing some work, hearing it crackle and hiss, while the wind blows the maple seeds out of the trees.

Today is Sunday, and our seminarian gave the homily at church. Since he's been with the church, he has been a rather quiet, circumspect individual, so we were wondering just how, hmm, boring he would be. Well, not at all! He was funny and on-the-mark, and we wanted to tell him how much we enjoyed it, but he disappeared.
