At Midnight By Moonshine


At Midnight By Moonshine
Originally uploaded by Dobka
I want to be a wolf
Running, hunting, free
With my pack in some great pine forest
Far, far from human predators
Far from human lights
To see the moon, the stars, the vapor of breath as we run
With farseeing, dark piercing wolf eyes
In love with the night, exulting in our song
Alive in our strength and skill
No cruelty but the cruelty of hunger.

Thank you so much for this Big Bear, Brandt is obviously a person after our own hearts.

His experiences with large Churches did not surprise me, there are self praising ‘Sunday Clubs’ in the UK as well. To talk about it... that’s OK but to actually DO it???

Just think how they must have felt. Here's a guy with working class hands who had shabby clothes and an out of town accent, no, not Brandt, Jesus, and they were faced His with reality in Brandt.

Just the thought of that would, as you mentioned, scare them s---less.

Thanks Fr Pete, I thought this was pretty impressive. And I came across it looking for a column by a guy who has cerebral palsy who works to help others with CP. What a koinkydink, nesc't pas?
