Here’s the quote I read, that got me to thinking about the comfort of small controlled burns: “Fire is twice bread,” according to the Arabian people. (This quote is from the book “Loaves and Fishes: The Inspiring Story of the Catholic Worker Movement,” about the late social justice activist Dorothy Day).
Anyway, we’re all looking for real love to stay, those controlled burns of the heart. We have to be so careful though. Fires can get away. It’s scary and unfair and too human, and not enough divine.
This is enough for today. Let’s see if I can post this, before I change moods and swings again. My heart is a playground!
Remember the scene in “The Color Purple,” when Celie finds her way, and her children find her again too? That’s one of the best scenes in movie history.
Life burns, and life cools, and life goes on, day by day. Here are some rhythms, just for listening, from Pink Floyd. Some people have met life and know about fire. And we survive, day to day. Sometimes we see rainbows too, coming right toward us.
