8 April 2014

Don’t go making a fashion statement
something it’s not, or equating
outward signs with spiritual realities.
This scarf may be no more than
a pretty accessory; a long, unkempt beard
as much a sign of vanity as an updo.
I believe in holy, sacramental things
without making theological
a purely aesthetic choice, spiritualizing
the length of my hair, your beard
or lack thereof.

"Home is ever so far away in the palm of your hand, and how to get there it is of no use to tell you. But you will get there; you must get there; you have to get there. Everybody who is not at home, has to go home."
