Sunday Light and Word – Peripheral Margins








The old man had an anatomy professor who told him that the antidote to anxiety is action. I’ve taken that half heartedly, with no heart, and embraced it like religion. That’s the song pumping in the ribcage. An ignition, an action outside of defensiveness. But ignition can offer softness, something I didn’t always understand. It can fuel humor and delicacy. It can elongate friendship. It can milk the demons free from you.

    I keep reading this over. I feel like if I can get it to stick in my brain a whole hell of a lot would be better.

    I love this Henry Cherry. I love every last bit of of it! Humor, delicacy, softness, elongated friendships, action igniting a lack of defensiveness… I reckon a combination of all that is a recipe for annihilating bad things served up my life. Thank you for including me. Like i said, i love it.
