I would not say I am looking for God. Or, I am not looking for God precisely. I am not seeking the God I learned about as a Catholic child, as an 18-year-old novice in a religious community, as an agnostic graduate student, as - but who cares about my disguises? Or God’s.
Again again you are
the right time after all
not according to
however we planned it
I am learning to see. I don’t know why it is, but everything enters me more deeply and doesn’t stop where it once used to. I have an interior that I never knew of. Everything passes into it now. I don’t know what happens there.

You know what’s weird? Day by day, nothing seems to change, but pretty soon…everything’s different.
Did you ever wonder if the person in the puddle is real, and you’re just a reflection of him?
We need your help to make our auction a success. We need donations of all kinds.

Beginning on November 23, 2012, the day after Thanksgiving, Parabola Magazine will be holding its second annual online auction to raise much needed funds.
We need friends of Parabola to donate items to make this auction a success. And this year we’ve made that process easier than ever. We are seeking art, crafts, signed and interesting books, restaurant meals, food, clothes, jewelry and accessories, lessons, business or personal services, …in other words, beautiful objects and acts.
How to donate Items for the Parabola auction
Donating items is straight forward. Donate Items will guide you through the process of providing: 1) One or more images of the item; 2) a detailed description of the object or service; 3) the estimated monetary value of what you are offering. We need your contribution today.
