Told Lynelle about feeling like there was “no god” for the last couple of days.  She knows what that’s like.  She said she thinks of penguins — who else could have thought them up?  She also gave me back Tattoos on the Heart with a page marked:

Father Greg Boyle:  “We seek to tell each person this truth: they are exactly what God had in mind when God made them.”   …   “We choose to become what child psychiatrist Alice Miller calls ‘enlightened witnesses’ — people who through their kindness, tenderness, and focused, attentive love return folks to themselves.”   p192    to return someone to themselves — I think this is what “redemption” really means.  I’ve always wondered.
