When I dream of paisley feathered chickens running around my house and they need chicken diapers because they are making a mess and then later they morph into kittens chasing stray dogs under the beds in another house that is mine and not yet mine, I finally just get up and get ready to drive to work, and on my way the delivery person calls to come early, like now instead of late this afternoon just as I am pulling into the parking lot at my office that is an hour away and as I walk in someone asks me for an obscure document that I am not even sure exists in its entirety and I wonder just how I am going to juggle the animal farm, an intense weekend workshop, the details of other pressing matters and yes, be mindful and present and centered….
…Come, Holy Spirit, come.
