Plans and Goals

Sometimes it helps to talk out the things you want to do and the projects you want to work on, and get cheers for stuff you've finished.

  • What are some of your upcoming plans and goals?

  • Are any of them things you'll need help with, and if so, what kind of help?

  • What are some plans/goals that you have recently completed?

The Games of Purgatory


There is a special corner of Purgatory
for the souls of unbaptized infants
and children who die unshriven with
their little sins hung 'round their necks like mittens
to stay until they grow ready for Heaven.

This, too, is where forgotten games go,
foursquare and Doctor Knickerbocker
and rhymes lost with dead languages.

Uriel sweeps them all up with his soft dark wings
and introduces them to each other.
