A couple of strangers were visiting a dusty little town in the back country of west Texas. It was hard-shell Baptist country: No drinkin’ and no dancin’! But these two were strangers, so they asked a cowboy where they might get a drink.

“In this town,” said the cowboy, “they use whiskey only for snakebite.”  Then he added slyly, “There’s only one snake in town.  So you better get in line before it gets worn out!”

  • As a deer thirsts for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God. | Psalm 42:1
  • How thirsty are you … for life … for truth … for justice?

I'm a Jesuit from Malta, an artist at heart and madly in love with all things beautiful and soulful: music, painting, sculpture, photography, film, theatre, poetry, good company, good food, good wine and more. I believe that beauty is a wonderful entry into the mystery of the God “whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” God can be sensed in all things if and when we engage in a long, loving look at the real that surrounds us. I consider myself a seeker with bottomless curiosity, an eternal student of life, exploring fresh and creative ways to proclaim the Good News in the hope of helping fellow pilgrims and seekers to embrace real and radical changes that will lead to conversion and transformation.

One thought on “SOME THIRST”

  1. God alone satisfies all our desires. Indeed, with Him my cup overflows! Thirst for living water and you will be satisfied 🙂
