Your Narthex or Mine?

In my humble opinion, matter is not generative. Only spirit is truly generative. Therefore form is not terribly interesting or compelling of itself. I like the term oikumene because it seems to head towards the search for what is true and living in the houses of worship of the world. I am compulsive in my dedication to knowledge of my creator. I am very broad in my willingness to taste (and possibly see) from any source where goodwill is evident.

thought from a bus by me


(looking out the window between Helena and Butte in the early '80's)

Upon entering my eye
form takes off its coat

Upon entering form
my eye re
veals its preference

tripe? boy this blogging thing is rough. I was just doing the dishes and thought about having remembered this and put it 'up' here and I had to rip off my rubber gloves and dash out with the intention of 'taking it down'. But... it can't really hurt anything. It's just words.

Onts and Gracehoppers

"Business or toil is merely utilitarian. It is necessary, but does not enrich or ennoble a human life."
-Aristotle

word of the day from a link on best colleges of 2009. This touches on a theme on my list of recurring themes. The grasshopper vs. the ant. Mary vs. Martha.
