the bends

In moments of unease, it will come as no surprise to most, I turn to God. And, to the surprise of some, to Anne. I found this quote today and it warmed me:

"When I left Queen's my future seemed to stretch out before me like a straight road. I thought I could see along it for many a milestone. Now there is a bend in it. I don't know what lies around the bend, but I'm going to believe that the best does. It has a fascination of its own, that bend, Marilla."

In other, and not entirely unrelated news, a song came back to me last night - one that has been archived deep in my memory of livingroom Bible studies in the early 80's where my mother (with Farah Fawcett hair) and my father (with Tom Selleck moustache) would lead a small clan of neo-Jesus Freaks, sitting cross-legged on shag carpeting, in worship on acoustic guitar.
In Your time, in Your time,
You make all things beautiful in Your time.
Lord, my life to You I bring,
May each song I have to sing,
Be to You a lovely thing, in Your time.


Funny, I never knew what Biblical reference that song came from until yesterday.

I love Anne.
I love that song.
I love that your mom had Farah-hair and that your dad had a Tom-stache.

kisses, my dear.

Wow, if you're right, Andrew, you get superkudos. I think you might be right. It's a very Nik thing to ask.

Nik?

No superkudos for Andrew. I take credit for all my writing.

I don't respond to manipulation, Anonymous. I would still, however, like to know who you are. If you are ever so inclined...
