Strange Mercy

"... and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"

I'm a former idealist turned 'defensive pessimist' who has concluded, after living on two coasts, two continents, and an island, that most of us spend our lives as prey, economically and psychologically. Awareness is the key to understanding this; but once we understand it, we may transcend it, choosing, when we can, to be neither prey nor predator.

A Fitting Memorial

Taken from the Washington Post, published August 28, 2007:

Glenn A. Gotz
October 3, 1946 - August 25, 2006

Not just a visitor to this world,
But our great good friend.
Glenn loved good conversation,
Good food, and laughter
(especially that of children).
It is ironic that his heart failed him;
It never failed us.

Payne Street Neighbors and Friends

I never knew you, Mr. Gotz; but these good people did, and loved you greatly.

I am more than willing to believe them.
