a great tid bit

totally needing a fiction read,
i went to my shelf the other nite and pulled down a book that
i had read in the pre-bone sigh years.
by richard bach - running from safety.

i remember i had liked it long ago.
this time, however, i was floored.

it's him talking to his inner child.

oh man.
could this be any better?
and i really love it's a guy doin' this kinda thing!

and so i've been reading with delight.
and shaking my head.
why wasn't this enough to get me talking to my own inner child?
i didn't even know i had one back then!

anyway.....i'm finding it delightful.

and i just got to a part i loved -

he's talking to his inner child and telling him that he doesn't want answers.
what he really wants is questions.

so his inner kid asks why not answers?

'because answers change,' i said. 'you don't want a million answers as much
as you want a few forever questions. the questions are diamonds you hold in the light.
study  a lifetime and you see different colors from the same jewel. the same questions,
asked again, bring you just the answers you need just the minute you need them.'

ahhhhhhhh doesn't that just feel good?

wow - love it. . .how simply an inner child can express the truths we need to see and re-see...(Is Richard Bach Stephen King's pseudonym?) Thanks Ter. . .
