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. 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.


  2. 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!
