I’m dedicating this post to Sarah, the friend who invited me to start this blog last year. It has helped me in many ways, many unexpected ways.
I met Sarah a few weeks ago on her trip to visit a shaman in Philadelphia. We had lunch. In the hour or so we had remaining, we found the Liberty Bell. We waited in line with a bunch of people from Alabama and took pictures of the bell.
It was nice to meet Sarah in person finally after several years of online “hi” and “how are you.” I had the best egg sandwich I’ve ever had for lunch and we talked about the past, the present, and the future. I articulated some things for her in our conversation that I had not spoken aloud to anybody before. It took our conversation to foreground my thoughts and make them whole through my explanation. I told her I don’t have beliefs and I’m not sure why we insist on beliefs. I just have my imagination. That’s enough for me. It sustains me.
Thank you Sarah.
