"Beauty confronts us with the requirement that we place ourselves among...the redeemers, the leaders in the protection of life. Once you have seen the bush on fire, you are not going to get out of the assignment unless you close your eyes to the beauty.... [You] either have to close your eyes or go back to Egypt and set the people free." - Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, "Rising to the Challenge of Our Times"

Dijon vu--the same mustard as before

I think I have found my mantra at last, among a list of puns forwarded blithely around the internet. Thanks--you know who you are. And to the rest of you, if you would like to receive this list of puns, you will have to ask for them because sometimes wisdom just doesn't alight on your head, you must actively seek it out.

It's a good mantra because it's really true when you think about it. It IS the same mustard as before, except for the first time you have mustard that is different, but actually it's still mustard. Preferences do exist, and some say they care not for mustard at all, but this is irrelevant.

I have also realized that my last posting, which was an appeal for pledges in the Legal Services fundraising run this Saturday, experienced technical difficulties. However, it is not too late (either for pledging, or to experience the oneness of all mustard).
