change. rungs of a ladder are grabbed with a powerful appendage. there, still, God guides you through this change, this climbing, this ascension, this lateral stretch we traverse, where sometimes suffering occurs, this nearness to every moment that has ever played out in the resounding billiard room inside the great wave & breath of existence, our manifold reality. i keep a coupon for salvation in my billfold. i used to have the blues in 3 different ways, but now i'm keen on the kinetic maneuvers that'll keep me & mine on the right path. praise be to God forever & ever, amen.
