If my wardrobe spoke it said for months blue
Now some days it speaks of red over top underneath yellow or orange


If I could change the world I would start with I
If I could give you everything I would start with myself


If I could get lost in the laughter of myself
Would it take me to the center of God

Love that your closet has entered it's fall, JS. It sounds brighter, more visibly delightful to the eye and heart.

I've found God in the middle of pleasure. If he can be found there then surely the answer is yes. Is there a place where he can not be?

Red and yellow and orange--colors of passion and action.

Beautiful musings, JS. The third one is powerful indeed. A call to laughter and a call to God.

And the image you chose to accompany these musings is a luscious one.

san: thank you...the image I found trolling google images using 'Holy Spirit' as the key word search.

The last musing is a deep wish for myself, and rememberance of those moments of unconscious freedom that seem to open up the thin spaces for me.

Ahhh! I really liked this. Reading and rereading bring some calm over me.

jsd said...

wife: ah shucks...I love you too.

angela: thank you - I hope the next door neighbor's painting is done.

I think getting lost in the laughter of yourself would take you to God's uvula. Her palatine uvula, to be exact.

So, laugh it up and get lost in it, girl.
