incommunicado

My blog-a-day goal kind of hit a bump in the road.

Or, rather, a head-on collision on the highway.

Which is what Kate met on Thursday night while she was driving to see her husband, Paul. One moment she was driving, the next moment she was hit by an impaired driver.

What annoys me now is remembering all the times I was unable to return her calls due to a hectic schedule compared to how much I would like to see "K8" show up on my call display today. I figure the phone's probably in smithereens, so I don't think that will be happening.

So, when she gets better (and I know she'll get better), she'll read this blog and laugh at the words: Kate, you definitely topped the bachelorette I gave you.

And I know that it's a wonderful world
But I can't feel it right now

Well I thought that I was doing well

But I just want to cry now

Well I know that it's a wonderful world

From the sky down to the sea

But I can only see it when you're here, here with me

- James Morrison, "Wonderful World"


the world is not
respectable; it is mortal,
tormented, confused,
deluded forever, but it is

shot through with beauty,

with love, with glints of

courage and laughter;
and in these, the spirit

blooms...
