Fishers of Men




*


Praise to those who are left behind.
Praise to those who tend to the bodies of the dead.
Praise to those who trouble deaf heaven with their bootless cries.
Praise to the women who bear it away.


*


This is our prayer for today.




*


Namaste.

I am one of those who was left behind. I don't want praise, I just want him back

Elisabeth-

Glad you liked it, glad it disturbed, too. The image tugs at something deep in me as well.

Nursemyra-

I'm sorry.


That feels so paltry and inadequate, but it's all I can offer.


And my prayer, for what its worth.

Amen. Yes. And amen. You offer solace to a crusty heart.

If your brother goes underground once he hits California, let me know and I'll scare him up for you.

But not in a scary way.

I don't think he wants to lose me this time. I truly believe it. But I'll keep your offer in mind, my Hero.
