I'm packing, right?
I'm moving soon, so of course i'm packing. All my stuff from the bookshelves. All my books. Cds. There's stuff to go through, and as I'm packing i flip through things. Old notebooks... and i was about to toss this old MarketWatch notebook out, tall, skinny, spiral-bound kind which a MarketWatch guy gave me when we all worked at CBS.com.
I'm flipping through it first, making sure it doesn't have some miraculous phone number in it which might save my life.
But what i find is written in John's handwriting. It might be a poem. I've never seen it before. Did he write it? It's uncharacteristically religious. Did he copy it down from somewhere (the bible) for reading at a funeral?
And i'm sort of moved, by how much i don't expect to find anything important (by how i have been packing old magazines that i'll never read again and how I'm debating: do i keep these old ATM receipts?) and then in the middle of it, in contrast, i find this strange, beautiful thing:
And his foes vanish as wax melts before fire
And smoke is dispersed by the wind
So may all those who hate this world
flee from his sight, and the just rejoice.
Damn, that Ashcroft is frightening. although i'm told this link no longer works. damn.
