Sister Pearl's World

me!

Hi. I'm Marco's sister. Those of you who don't know me can call me Pearl. When I was nineteen, I bit into a pearl in a fried oyster in some linoleum-floored crab shack on Cape Cod.

I'm a recovering graduate student, high school Spanish teacher, unrepentant history geek, and budding mystic. I've traveled to four of the seven continents. I always love to discuss politics, religion, history, and philosophy. In my other life, I'm also a wife with really poor housekeeping skills. But I can cook.

We need to rediscover a contemplative spirit, so that the love of God may warm our hearts.

Finally able to get out into the garden!

The ground has thawed out, I can begin tilling and pruning, digging and clearing.

Boy, are my arms sore and my hands all torn up. But it feels sooooo good.
