Psalm 137 reflects my longing to return home, even as I am aware that I have idealized it in my earnest efforts to not forget it.
One who is blind from birth will always be blind. That is what my medical training teaches me. My faith, however, gives me hope for a different outcome.
The Psalms lengthen the moment, enlarge the experience and connect a private experience to those of other human beings. Wonder fades if we do not “back it up.”
