While this site shamelessly celebrates the beauty and sensuality of the physical, we also celebrate the supremacy of the spiritual. This brings us to that endangered species of soul to soul communication: the book. Why does our literary mag insist the book is still sacred?
Perhaps, this meeting of the minds with as little interference as possible from the bogus physical world is the best shot our spirits have of clearly grasping the big picture. That picture is worth a thousand words. By all means, savor the physical world, but don't confuse it with ultimate reality. People around the globe believe that God inspires sacred books. I don't know anyone who thinks God has a blog or an infomercial. Maybe there's a reason. Books may not be this world's cutting edge technology, but this world may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer. We all need to be more spiritual. Reading more good books and knowing more people like Maribel Diaz can help us toward that end.
