“Seeing, contrary to popular wisdom, isn’t believing. It’s where belief stops, because it isn’t needed any more.” Terry Pratchett, the celebrated fantasy writer, wrote this.
If you can see something, you don’t have to put much belief in it, because you know it is there.
And so, I am stepping out on a limb this weekend. I am believing in what I cannot see, much less hear.
In the midst of all this, I have friends coming from various parts of the world to spend time with me as they go about their appointments on this sunny island set in the sea.
These friends I can see. They help me in my quest to believe.
