It's an aesthetic failing but also a moral one to see happiness as somehow less profound, *interesting,* less accommodating of insight, than other kinds of experience. I worry in contemporary fiction, that we assume trauma is the most interesting story we have --Garth Greenwell

Please know that I attended divinity school where I learned to define pantheism and panentheism. I can cite the dangers of both. But beyond the classroom I have learned love. And while I am distinct from, I have also been swept up in the other so that days close when

The softening simile has lost its flavor. God is no longer like or as this or that. God is (fill in the blank). Today God is the wind. Yesterday God was the loneliness that refused to yield. Tomorrow God may be the neighbors who just moved in next door.

Some of you writers out there dream of arrangements/places like this (I know I do). Just think, a couple of weeks to get away and focus solely on your writing. Well, apply already.

Dear Serena & Lily, if I had an extra $128, I would be on those Positano Linen Pajamas like a duck on a June bug. But alas, I do not at the present. But I shall keep the dream alive...with God as my witness, I shall.

Silver and gold and gifs have I none, but I did just remember your name to the Grace that keeps this world. Courage for you. Amen.

I visited the salon today. Older lady beside me said, "From profile, you look like Steven Seagal (slight pause) which would be nice if not for the wife beating stuff." I said, "Yeah, that ruins it, huh?" She said, "Yeah."

Absolutely goes both ways, Pat. But I expect the President to lead by example, to lead both parties, to lead our country. And he is not leading in an exemplary way.
