of shadow man and leaf jumper

The shadowy man scurried across the street with a look of despair while the young lovers crossed in the other direction and did not even see this phantom soul.

As I walked down Worth Street it occurred, the thought that at that very moment my love for every single human on this spinning globe was real. Even if it originated perhaps from hearing about Thomas Merton's revelation at the corner of Walnut and Fourth Street that cold December day so long ago in Louisville.

Tonight I witness my friend celebrate 2 years as a free man and continue his spiritual journey. Tomorrow we gather to celebrate my dear daughter's fifth birthday and life is good. It is not a dead end street.  God is with us each step along our way.
