Fools Rush In [reading]

"And what about God? Where was he? Or She? Or It? Beginning at a young age I had a tendancy to look for God in the oddest of places. It all started when the preacher said God was everywhere, he was even there when you were sleeping. Especially when you were sleeping. This kept me awake for years.

I would eyeball the inside of decaying fruit and peer down gopher holes. I would search birds' nests, spiders' webs and ant colonies. Sometimes I'd follow my brother when he sleepwalked onto the lawn. That seemed otherwordly."
