“No need to clean up or tidy up or dress up because it’s a come-as-you-are party. Why not just wake up and get your dancing shoes on?”

– Jeff Blake, Homestretch

The Other Side

“When we set out to seek our private happiness, we often create an idol that is sure to topple. Any attempts to protect any full and private happiness in the midst of so much public suffering have to be based on illusion about the nature of the world we live in. We can only do that if we block ourselves from a certain degree of reality and refuse solidarity with “the other side” of everything, even the other side of ourselves.”

~ Richard Rohr, Preparing For Christmas
