It doesn't interest me if there is one God or many gods.

I want to know if you belong or feel abandoned.

If you know despair or can see it in others.

I want to know if you are prepared to live in the world with its harsh need to change you. If you can look back with firm eyes saying this is where I stand.

I want to know if you know how to melt into that fierce heat of living falling toward the center of your longing.

I want to know if you are willing to live, day by day, with the consequence of love and the bitter unwanted passion of sure defeat.

I have been told, in that fierce embrace, even the gods speak of God.

Old Bar this weekend

We walked on the beach and woke very early for the Old Bar attempt at the Guiness Book of record of the most amount of garage sales, 11o was the estimate.... so much garage sale fun and then more walking on the beach..... a wonderful get away
