For they shall inherit the spin cycle


“Do not be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.”

From the Sermon on the Mount, this may be the most cryptic, provocative, challenging, arguable, seductive, maddening, yet liberating and reaffirming line in the New Testament if not in all world literature.

And only then in the Village Wash Tub do I realize that it’s also a precondition for what I do.
