Passage of the Day

"'This is a very strange sermon,' Greta says.

'Yes, I suppose it is,' I agree. 'But I've been thinking that although I didn't know Mr. Svaalberd, not really, nor did he know me, the strands of our lives are braided together somehow.' I pause, and in that moment I see that so is all of life, braided together -- this talkative brook speaks my thoughts; the thrush trills out the song of my heart. Were I to stand still long enough, roots would grow from the soles of my feet into the earth.

It makes me dizzy to consider it, but I feel suddenly how all things are woven together, all things seen and unseen, all things alive now and that once were, for generations back and generations to come, woven of a kind of golden thread that links me to Greta and both of us to this man, to everyone and everything forever right now, this moment, world without end, amen. Which is how I finish the sermon: 'World without end, amen.'"

Quote of the Day

"We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow path and told to be responsible."

~ Novelist Robert R. McCammon
