Clara and I Talk About My Studies (In Pictures)

Sometimes when I've been studying all day, I find it helpful to bounce some ideas off of Clara, just to help me process some different ideas floating around in my head. She's a good listener, as her faces show...


Me: Clara, can I talk to you for a while? I want to talk to you about eudaimonia.
Clara:


Me: Hey, come on, are you looking at Mama to "rescue" you from me?
Clara:


Me: Man, Clara, I am SO done with Augustine for a while. And the thing is, I'm not done.
Clara:


Me: Did you know that menstruating women used to be excluded from church gatherings?
Clara:


Me: So someone suggested that the gathering of loaves and fishes is allegorical of what God does with the scattered particles of our long-dead bodies at the final resurrection.
Clara:


Me: Speaking of fish, maybe Jonah reveals to us our aversion to diversity and our discomfort with the fact that God loves those "others."
Clara:


Me: I cheated on my margins yesterday. I made them 0.8 inches instead of 1.0.
Clara:


Me: Hey, look Clara, my finger.
Clara:


Me: And another thing, what's the deal with St Jerome? Am I right?
Clara:


Me: Clara, I'm getting the impression you're kind of done with this conversation. Are you pretending to be sleeping? Come on, I can see that your eyes are open.
Clara:


Clara is the best conversation partner.
