Good Morning, God!
This morning Kit and I fly back home — spending most of the day BETWEEN Tucson and Honolulu.
I feel “between” God. I think I am in the middle of a “molt” which tends to make me grumpy. I am neither who I was — nor who I am going to be. It is not a “comfortable” feeling, God.
Being “between” brings to mind the science fiction / fantasy of Anne McCaffrey in which the “dragons” of Pern — a far flung planet — could “travel” by going “between.” Between was apparently another dimension. What’s fun, God, is that there really do seem to be MORE dimensions than we (humans) experience. Your Creation is AWESOME!
And this is Holy Saturday too. Somehow being”between” on Holy Saturday seems appropriate. Jesus must have been “between” on that Saturday — between Good Friday and Easter! And who knows exactly where.
There is so much mystery in this World and in The Universe. So much we don’t know! And then there are all the facts we “know” that aren’t true. For example, in The Brain That Changes Itself, the author tells how our brains CAN grown new brain cells and how that discovery overturned 100 years of scientific dogma. I love it, God, when Science overturns FORMER FACTS.
That’s the sort of thing that makes for Humility — if one stops and ponders it. Hmm. There’s yet another Between, God, — Between Humility and Hubris. And, now that I think about it, our cultural “heros” or at least “C.E.O.” are clearly on the Hubris End.
All that Hubris scares me. My only hope, God, is that — WITH YOUR HELP — Our Western Culture can be undergoing a Molt, too. Between where we are — and where You Call us to be.
