Merton - Dark Dreary

"Last night it snowed again and there is a fairly thick blanket of snow
on the ground and on the trees. The sky looks like lead and seems to
promise more. It is about dark as my own mind. I see nothing, I
understand nothing. I am sorry for complaining and making a
disturbance. All I want is to please God and to do His will."

(THE SIGN OF JONAS, page 27 ... Merton wrote this on the first
in Lent of 1947.)

What is all I want?
