The Life of Liz

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~Anne Frank

Ponderings

Does anyone have the foggiest idea what sort of power
we so blithely invoke?

Or, as I suspect, does no one believe a word of it?

The churches are children playing on the floor

with their chemistry sets, mixing up a batch of TNT
to kill a Sunday morning.

It is madness to wear ladies' straw hats and velvet hat to church;
we should all be wearing crash helmets.
Ushers should issue life preservers and signal flares;

they should lash us to our pews.

~Annie Dillard

I LOVE this quote and I LOVE Annie Dillard.

A brand new mom trying to navigate the crazy world of mixed families, babies, and working full time. Phew! Just writing that makes me want to lie down.
