LEAPFROGGING

A story I loved as a child was about two frogs who were playing leapfrog. What else?

But by mistake they jumped into a large vat of fresh cream. Finding no foothold they started swimming to avoid drowning. But one of the frogs was just too tired. He couldn’t take it and he croaked to his friend that he was finished. And sure enough, he sank to the bottom of that vat and died a miserable death. He really croaked.

But the other frog missed his friend, of course, saddened by his loss but he kept right on going persevering, swimming, persevering, persevering, swimming with determination. Here we go. He kept right on going. With perseverance and determined strokes he had churned that cream into butter and hopped out.

Those who don’t give up and persevere may be in for a pleasant surprise!

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.
