I can feel the cold in my marrow.
The bloody infamous parts
Where the bone stops and whatever it is begins
But now as the wind topples cars and ravages homes
All I can think is how I feel the cold in my marrow
Bones frozen, blood icy and its freezing through and through.
At least I can say you remind me of him
The way you move
The things you say
At least I can find some similarity
The things you do
But that’s it
And it’s faint.
Possibly not there at all.
"In college, I used to underline sentences that struck me, that made me look up from the page. They were not necessarily the same sentences the professors pointed out, which would turn up for further explication on an exam. I noted them for their clarity, their rhythm, their beauty and their enchantment. For surely it is a magical thing for a handful of words, artfully arranged, to stop time. To conjure a place, a person, a situation, in all its specificity and dimensions. To affect us and alter us, as profoundly as real people and things do."
This is the best part of my work day. #Kindle on, attention to world off. (Taken with Instagram)
“It is amazing that loving our neighbor is such a radical statement, as it is foundational to the teachings of Jesus,” said Rev. Steve Jerbi, pastor of All Peoples Church, which has been actively involved in responding to the shooting at the gurdwara. “Yet, the walls of division, fear, and even just knowing our neighbors is too often our reality. This statement reminds us, in light of both tragedy and in everyday life, that we are called to love our neighbors. This is a chance for Christians to continue to express not just our sympathy, but our love for sisters and brothers in the Sikh community.”
It never hurts a religion to engage insome earnest, kind-hearted interfaith outreach.
