2008:

i believe in the universe. most days.
that it knows what it's doing.
that despite all the incomprehensible wrongs that it allows,
the suffering and pain...
that there is reason and sense.
that things do work out in the end.
(where is the end?)(don't try to find it, it's already there)
that good and right prevails.
but i don't claim to have the wisdom to understand its methods.
i search for signs,
i keep open eyes and ears and mind.
and i've certainly grown.
i'm closer than i've ever been.
but that's like saying my current balcony is closer to the moon than my previous balconies.
it's true...but so far from being meaningfully true.

if it weren't for all the ways it's been poisoned (see, for example, the rules violations by the university of michigan the penalties for which prevented them from fielding a truly competitive team from 1995 until now), the ways most everything everywhere has something rotten hidden, i still enjoy athletic achievement as exemplified by march madness in college basketball. and it's not rational, find all the reasons you'd like to dislike duke university, but i think i'll always be a fan of the duke blue devils {chasseurs do not say rouge (red) but bleu-cerise (cherry blue), except when speaking of the color of the lips increaseth learning.

understanding is a fountain of life unto him that hath it; but folly is the chastisement of fools.

pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

there is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
