Transitions

We, in the West, do not like to let go of things.  This is proven by the storage industry. Last year alone, Americans spent $38 billion on self-storage – to store things they wanted to keep, but did not want to see, use or touch. Hmm. What could $38 billion, used differently do?

Lord Have Mercy

The process of repentance draws us back

            against our will,

            wanting cheer, not sadness –

But like the cartoon spectre,

            it waits and knows

            surrender to memory will come.
