The angel tries to save me…and I tell her not to bother because it’s like holding your breathe…she thinks I am crazy. That’s not fair…I don’t want to squander this opportunity, I explain…it’s not her job to save me – it’s mine to struggle through and find my own light. God tries to intervene…and then he rages in the corner having been dismissed…but I would rather walk through hell with a smile on my face than be forced to hold the hand of any master. The irony of the whole affair is that I have conjured up all this make-believe…it makes me laugh out loud and with a single declarative statement the straightjacket of this exchange vanishes…and I realize that I have indeed been ‘saved’.

About Lawrence Lewis

I do a number of things professionally...but most of all and the true purpose of what I do through "my work" is to provide for my family, be a good husband and great father, and try to make a difference as a world citizen...I guess it's not much more complicated than that 🙂
