I haven’t been idle since I last contributed to Meditations & Meanderings; far from it, as a matter of fact. My time has been occupied by a bevy of house-guests, a major death in our church, several ordination candidates, etc.
I have also thrice-borne witness to the devastation of New York, via The Avengers, Batman: The Dark Knight Rises (a.k.a., Gotham) and The Amazing Spiderman. And we thought that the humidity here in Philadelphia was brutal!
I am an old comic book fan from the ‘60s and ‘70s; back then, we couldn’t even have dreamt of such visual extravaganzas as that to which we are now being treated. I waited forty years for an Avengers film and I can only say that it was well worth the wait!

What is it that defines your life? Our grandparents were the product of the Great Depression. Our parents were raised amidst the 2nd World War. Their children, namely my generation, were the beneficiaries of the post-World War II boom.
Our grandparents were renowned for saving money, as they well-understood that a day might return when money would be hard to come by. They remained thrifty for the length of their days.
Our parents triumphed over the Nazism and Communism; it was not much of a stretch to think that they could provide a better living for their children. There lives were invested in accordance with the impulse to triumph, not merely to endure.
