The Merton Prayer

MY LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.

~Thomas Merton,
from Thoughts in Solitude

My name is Elizabeth Ann Dillon, but most of my friends call me Dill.  I’m a full-time bartender and part-time volunteer currently based in Metro Detroit.  Like many young adults recently released into the world from the structure of school & other formalized training, I sometimes struggle to find my own way.

I embrace both the new media and traditional methods of communication in my pursuit of community, beauty and my own vocation.  Exuberant and sometimes over the top, I use writing and art as ways of not just whistling, but singing, into the dark.
