Cloud Interlude 7/Assorted Business



*Little Spencer heads out to summer camp this weekend. He's growing up fast. Children are so predictable in that way.

*I found a solution to my prayer problem: Now, when I feel overwhelmed by all of the goodness in my life, instead of praying to a God I don't believe in, I take a deep breath and hold it for a second. It actually seems to work better than prayer. I feel like I'm getting away with something when I take that big, deep breath. It makes me feel good.

And that's the point, right?

I too feel the impulse now and then. Like you I pause and smile at myself. But it's a blessed relief to be rid of the baggage of bygone generations. At such times isn't it a wonder to stand naked before the universe as it really is? A complete and utter mystery. Unknowable, but beautiful and infinite in possibility.

When you put it that way, yeah, it is nice. The wonder is almost explosive.
