I spoke of drawing together the infinite and the tiny, the eternal and timely, and how a mechanical God, a prime mover detached from what was moved will not do. Neither will the dualism that separates creator from creation in such a way that he drops by ever so often, like company staying the night, even cleaning out the gutters for you, on their way to Phoenix. Only the God beyond everything and in everything can work, and does, a mystery so deep it’s everywhere, seen and unseen.

And then, as a string tied to another pen, she sent me the poem of  ee cummings. We know it, even if in part, and his oh so well placed parenthesis:

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
