Personal musings and postings from an Augustinian friar living and working in the upstate NY Capitol region.
"Eustress" is an entirely new word for me, and one that I knew what it meant as soon as I saw it. In fact, there have been times when I wondered if there was a word that had that meaning. Just the other day I was talking to my new doctor about landing in the hospital 15 months into my time in Japan. I loved Japan and enjoyed living there, but my doctor (a Japanese nun) said that it was indeed stress, the stress of trying to assimilate all of the new overt and subliminal information that I was absorbing that had caused my innards to rebel.

Friar of the Order of Saint Augustine (Augustinians). I joined the Order in 1967. Served in Japan from 1977 until 1995. From 1996 until 2008 I worked in telecom and IT, usually in software development project management. Then in May 2008 I returned to the Order. Was pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish (Staten Island, NY) from August of 2010 until June of 2016. Then Our Mother of Good Counsel Parish in Bryn Mawr, PA until June of 2021. Currently serving as assistant pastor at St. Mary's in Waterford, NY and St. Augustine's in Troy, NY. You may find random thoughts, photos, poems, essays, etc. from me here from time to time.
