Just typing in to cut into the silence. Thank you for your post.

Brava! Thanks for posting this. (And you are welcome to come hang out at my OAC U.C.C. hippie church. We sing a lot and have cookies afterwards, too.)

Sometimes unmediated speech is most powerful as in this post. I'm grateful to you for putting aside your "way of being." Thank you for this. Much appreciated.

I am grateful for these comments, and like the idea of the cookies as well as the encouragement to let loose with more unmediated speech. Best wishes, Kate Stimpson

I was raised Catholic. Let's just say I lapsed a long time ago. I've been thinking a lot in recent years about converting officially to Episcopalianism to add one more body&soul to the rolls of a church that actually honors gays, women, and caritas. Thanks, Kate, for writing this.

Thanks and welcome, Kate Stimpson

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.
