God in the city?
God is a great big wilderness spinning in space, and in places here and there settlements scar His face, and they have turned Him into real estate and put Him up for sale.
It's funny... the times I'm surest that God is speaking to me about anything, it is through trees or rivers or dogs. Sometimes I resolve to hear God speak to me through the bricks and the pavement and the steel and glass... But those speak to me only about people.
It seems like a creation has a lot to say about it's creator. Regardless of which creation we're talking about.
I have got to get out of the city. Maybe on saturday the girls and I will take a long drive and catch some peace and quiet. I'd like to check out the monastery up north. Maybe one day I can get a sitter and take a little retreat.
