For Christopher Berns
HAPPY 16TH BIRTHDAY CHRISTOPHER
June 21, 2004
Make a way for yourself inside yourself.
Stop looking in the other way of looking.
You already have the precious mixture
that will make you well.
"It is a curious and inescapable fact about our lives...
That we cannot live without a cause, without some
object of devotion, some center of worth, something on
which we rely for our meaning."
- H. Richard Niebuhr
