village people

14 . May . 2010


friday night,
met my MainSqueeze
in union square +
sauntered thru the
village before landing
on a 2nd fl terrace
for spicy mexican food;
hothothot, andale!


i’ll follow that man anywhere.
especially if it’s home.

watergun fight

yes, plastic kitchen bowl
as henry’s helmet.

ps-
‘it takes a gospel-changed heart to
give help unselfishly to others
and
it takes a gospel-changed heart to
receive help unashamedly from others.

the gospel removes the
proud self-centeredness
that despises people
who are in weakness.

but it also removes the
proud self-centeredness
that despises and hates
to admit any of your own
weakness + need.’

pps-
we were captivated by
the david foster wallace
commencement speech
book last we read thru
at the strand,
an exhortation to self-less-ness,
a call to learn the disciplines
of being unselfish.

ppps-
tim puts it another way:

‘live in a community where you
not only don’t let others carry their
burdens alone, but also
you
don’t try to carry
your own load alone!
help others +
let others help you.’
