In “Acrobat,” a song that has long been the soundtrack of my life, Bono sings, “I’d break bread and wine if there was a church I could receive in.” Thanks to Brian over at New York Daily Photo, I may have found the place. This is not the church of my childhood . . .

I’m deep in the chrysalis here, people. Silent but growing. Stretching and changing and testing shaky wings. And the shell is starting to crack . . .

  1. You gotta love a church that puts up a quote from Voltaire – it shows they’re thinking outside the dogma, and that, to me anyway, is like a breath of fresh air.

  2. Happy awakenings, my friend….

  3. Brian,

    I love what you wrote on the New York blog. You put my naive intuition into words. According to Eckhart Tolle, this church is a sign of community enlightenment. Human evolution so to speak. I wouldn’t mind if he was right.


  4. Hey Cuz,

    One of the most important spiritual messages of my life came from an 80’s horror flick. In Fright Night, Roddy MacDowell plays a vampire killer (actually a tv host pretending to be a vampire killer) while Zach Galligan (I think) plays the young hero trying to save his girlfriend from the clutches of a real vampire (Chris Sarandon). In one scene, MacDowell raises a cross he has in his hand to fend off the vampire’s attack. The vampire (Sarandon) grabs the cross and breaks it in half. He then looks a him (MacDowell) with a sneer and says “You’ve got to have faith for that to work”.

    Keep your eyes open and you never know what you’ll pick up. Love the image.

    Take care!

  5. your growth is beautiful to witness

  6. Here’s to not being afraid to laugh.

  7. “and don’t let the bastards drag you down”

    (also in “Acrobat” by U2)
