An echo of America’s anthem in the highway. (Long Island, NY)
I’ll dream of black asphalt ribbons tonight, tying up the gift-wrapped silence of rolling plains.
Clouds’ summits thunder on the horizon, echoing future dreams.
When you look past what’s in front of you, it becomes clear.

“Nothing is more practical than finding God,
than falling in Love in a quite absolute, final way.
What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination,
will affect everything.
It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning,
what you do with your evenings,
how you spend your weekends,
what you read,
who you know,
what breaks your heart,
and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
Fall in Love,
stay in love,
and it will decide everything.”
-Fr. Pedro Arrupe S.J.
