Rick's really on this week, and it's great to hear it. It's better to be part of it.
As an aside, I'm thinking of having my (right) ear pierced*. To mark this body and this life as God's, ala the Hebrew bond-slave, the man who chooses to put aside a barren, impoverished freedom for a richer slavery in a great house.
What do you think?
*Does an exclusive left ear piercing still connote bein' a wee bit lavender?
