Simple

Collage by Gerardo Gomez

Daniel Berrigan’s motto for the Nicaragua mission,

‘Let’s test this thing called “soul”.’

I get. I too, get the irony of following up such a precept with, “It was as simple as that.” How do we humans, what with our flesh and religions and legal-ese, starved souls and designer denim and bipartisan conquistadors, unceasing questions and prejudices and even more makeshift answers and partitions, even have a word “simple”? It should be proof right there that there is a God, as we cannot have devised it on our own; it was given to us by a lucid and bestowing creator. A reminder of the womb and the deathbed, and yes, of something beyond.
