My version of religion consists of music, art, story, reading, writing, hiking, my dog, and sex with my husband…in no particular order.  What all of these things have in common is the capacity to open me up, to reach me.  They make me thankful, glad to be alive.  They elicit a flutter of hope where often there is none.  I feel wonder and peace in their presence.  They make me want to be a better person.
