quoted by Kathleen Norris in her Acedia and Me:

"I must never, at any moment, presume to say that there is no way out for God because I cannot see any. For it is despair and presumption to confuse one's pittance of imagination with the possibility over which God disposes."

Exactly. One hears people argue against the possibility of heaven by saying that every attempt even to imagine utopia results in something absurd or deeply boring. They conclude that evil is and always shall be inherently necessary and unavoidable in reality. The failure of imagination in this regard, however, is only a product of its fallen state in this world. We can not honestly show that heaven is impossible simply because we cannot imagine how it would work.

I want to announce a new blog of mine: Roxy Katt: Longpost Blogging.

I realize that brevity is the soul of blog. Consequently, I have never been one to post long posts at the blog you are now looking at. I know that I don't actually read long posts myself that much, especially if they are by someone I don't know or whose work I am not familiar with. So I have deliberately kept most of my writings here short.

But every once in a while I get an idea I think needs a little more development. And I want to be free to post accordingly without detracting from the quick flow of this site. Consequently, I have started the new blog site for those occasional posts that require more space.

Don't worry that you'll have one more thing to check on the net. Whenever I post at Roxy Katt: Longpost Blogging I will post a quick notice of it here as well.

It's in The Mammoth Book of Erotic Confessions, edited by Barbara Cardy and published by Constable and Robinson. I've got a copy of it now and it looks marvellous. 582 pages of erotic confessions by people around the world!
