A Lovely Thought

My cielo, you remember, is Latina. Tonight she happened to glance over at what I was writing for theology class and saw something about me "reading/writing as a white person."

"I never think of you that way," she told me. "I just see you."


I wish the whole world could be that way, don't you?

  1. Yes ma'am.

    It would be nice if we weren't talking about the first black president or the first female president, but rather, hopes for the next great president, whomever that may be.

  2. *sigh*

    We'll get there someday. Come, Lord Jesus.

  3. I remember my very good friend Lois, in my senior year at College. She took me to a family gathering over Easter, with all her aunts and uncles; and I was astounded to see that they were all of Japanese ancestry. Then I remembered, so was she.
