much more to say about the binding of isaac! just for starters: isaac was 37 yrs old at the time of the incident. not exactly a young boy abused by his addled parent. also, god did not say to kill or to sacrifice him. he said, 'make an offering.' god is very subtle as einstein said and we have to listen carefully since he sometimes plays word games. this is one of the most illuminating incidents in the torah and also the most misunderstood. god and abraham have gotten bad raps!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
