Did you guys see Kenneth Copeland blow the virus away?
It reminded me of that time that the Pope prayed for covid-19 to go away (in late March…. ).
Also I watched Mary Magdalene today, so there’s been a bit of Jesus during my weekend.

(Joaquin Phoenix was an odd choice for Jesus, but apparently him and Rooney Mara started dating after (while?) filming this movie. I know the characters are whitewashed but idc, I liked the movie and was bawling during it. Mary Magdalene was also one of Johann Johannsson’s last films he scored before he passed.)

You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down.

The people I love the best
jump into work head first
without dallying in the shallows
and swim off with sure strokes almost out of sight.
They seem to become natives of that element,
the black sleek heads of seals
bouncing like half-submerged balls.

I love people who harness themselves, an ox to a heavy cart,
who pull like water buffalo, with massive patience,
who strain in the mud and the muck to move things forward,
who do what has to be done, again and again.

I want to be with people who submerge
in the task, who go into the fields to harvest
and work in a row and pass the bags along,
who are not parlor generals and field deserters
but move in a common rhythm
when the food must come in or the fire be put out.

The work of the world is common as mud.
Botched, it smears the hands, crumbles to dust.
But the thing worth doing well done
has a shape that satisfies, clean and evident.
Greek amphoras for wine or oil,
Hopi vases that held corn, are put in museums
but you know they were made to be used.
The pitcher cries for water to carry
and a person for work that is real.

Finally, the threat has been contained. New York is safer tonight because of this valiant effort.

As our own species is in the process of proving, one cannot have superior science and inferior morals. The combination is unstable and self-destroying.
