Through the Trees Oil Paint Rendered — Indian Land, South Carolina
Facts don't change to suit our preferences,
but denial never met a fact it couldn't disappear
like that (Snaps fingers).

If denial doesn't like something,
denial disappears it on the spot.

There never was a truth denial couldn't deny
and X-out in a wink.
You could talk to Jesus about that. 

Denial is a superpower beyond the reach
of all other superpowers. 

Nothing fazes denial.

Truth bounces off.
Reality walks away.
Facts disappear.

Denial wins.

Until it squares up with global warming.
And confronts the sixth near extinction 
(Which may be more final than near).

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
