Refusing Paradise

Saw this sign in Middletown, Rhode Island a few weeks ago and got a good laugh.

If paradise is a realm free from suffering, and if purgatory is a rest- stop where our stained souls get a good exfoliation, then I’m choosing neither. I’m going to trek ahead into the grit, grace and wonder or ordinary life.

“There’s more than one answer to these questions, pushing me  in a crooked line, the less I seek the source from some definitive, the closer I am to fine.”– Lyric from “Closer to Fine” by Indigo Girls
