an odd little moan

i've been struck today in my quiet moments that i've been praying about my lack of any real attempt at praying. praying about my inability to pray certainly seems like a paradox to me.

it has felt like a bit of a malaise as i continue on. my writing is a prayer, my work is a prayer, my relationships are a prayer when i take the time to extend myself out and lift my head from my own self-absorption.

Lord have mercy.

Christ have mercy.

Lord have mercy.

a lot.
