from the pages of Patrick's
Personal Spiritual Journal
Nostalgia is God's greatest gift to mankind.
To have that moment when all at once the pace enters slow motion and you have the sense of placing the last piece in some great puzzle.
Suddenly you have the chance to ever so briefly see the picture as it was intended to be seen--whole.
The moments of disjunction and dysfunction suddenly slip themselves into a mosaic of unbroken beauty.
That unbroken beauty is unbroken in the way that a formerly done thing is un-done.
And for a moment this haphazard life is revealed for what it is--a compelling story written, no, scribbled furiously by a mad genius of a novelist.
Not only is the story written brilliantly, though, it is written with passion for one character which is only equaled by his passion for the next.
And in these moment, and these moments alone, is this whole life shown for what it truly is.
