The Journey

Who is God?
        and where?
So many questions
      Bouncing off the ceiling
        back into my soul
              Prodding me
                Moving me
                Leading me
on the journey of discovery
    whose end is Zion
Then I will understand God
              and myself

Busy

Do this! Do that!
    all things scream at once
    Demanding attention
    Josling for position
        clawing
        grabbing
          suffocating
OH!  THE NOISE!
QUIET!
  Just for a moment
    can you hear it
      silence
        me
          God
This is real
This is true
This is shalom

The Perfect State
(sort of)

The govermnment that governs best, governes least.

Still one more thing, fellow citizens - a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned.  This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities.
