Garrison Keeler and Thomas Merton

I've subscribed to The Writer's Almanac for a long time now (and semesterly require my grad-students in a poetry course to do so too), and whenever possible I like to hear Keillor read the "literary news" of the day on NPR. As you may know, Keillor always signs off with this signature closing: "Be well, do good work, and keep in touch." It's a blessing of sorts, and I like it. But this afternoon I read another similar blessing, this one from Thomas Merton:

Be good, keep your feet dry, your eyes open, your hearet at peace and your soul in the joy Christ.
