I finished reading The Shack by William P. Young, sometime in the night. It is not particularly well-written, though perhaps that is an intentional tone, but it certainly is clear in its disdain for organized and mindless religion.
I certainly now want to visit the Wallowa Lake State Park in Oregon, the "Little Switzerland of America."
There are a couple of reminder quotes I place here.
The soul is healed by being with children.
- Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Sadness is a wall between two gardens.
- Kahlil Gibran
God is a verb.
- Buckminster Fuller
Paradigms power perception and perceptions power emotions.
- from the book
and to conclude, the wondrous Elizabeth Barrett Browning!
Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
