Listening to St. John’s Passion

planet of the blind

St. John’s Passion. Love and forgiveness are the same. Bach knew its grand scale. I will take today to listen to this oceanic music over and over. I’ll give my sore heart what it so craves.


Christ is for me a vision of blood and bone embracing the stars. Love is what we’re designed for.


I will not fail. Not in this regard. This love, hair, flesh, crooked foot, mystery.


O great love, love without measure.


I too wish to cradle the world in my arms.
