The Revelationary War

I'm back from Louisville, Kentucky, where my hotel was at the very corner where the Trappist monk and prolific writer Thomas Merton was seized by a spiritual revelation, filling him with a profound love for every human being, as well as a sense of the vital importance of love and care for all people. There was an angry homeless guy leaning against the sign for support, yelling unintelligible things unrelated to Thomas Merton, but probably concerning issues of social justice. I would have stayed longer, but there's no stopping.
Love from Wilson World,
