"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Everyone's Gone To the Moon

Wind has just come up strongly. Still hot and humid, cloudy as well. Wind presages a strong thunderstorm, nothing more. Or so it seems. Still, the front door faces north, so we sheeted it in plastic, duct tape, and concrete bricks.

We dare water to get in there, now. It will probably take us up on it in the next 24 hours.

Walked the neighborhood earlier, down to the Fire Station a block away. An eerie feeling of being in an "end of the world" movie. Business closed, few cars on what is usually a very busy road; and no one apparently at home in the fire house.

Probably all inside watching the hurricane on TV. The new Houston past-time.
