Three Beautiful Things 10/24/10: Tomb/Womb, Jade Palace Supreme, Tide Stemmed

1.  Bishop John Thornton masterfully worked over the metaphorical power of the tomb of Lazarus and the experience of resurrection. I thought of Friar Lawrence in Romeo and Juliet:  "The earth that's nature's mother is her tomb ; What is her burying grave that is her womb".  The power of the metaphor of resurrection is that the tomb can become the womb.

2.  Tired, having had a busy day, we decided to order take out from Jade Palace.  I've been eating food from Jade Palace for over fifteen years and tonight's food was the best ever.  They really got it right tonight, especially the broccoli chicken.

3.  I made the adjustment, a simple one, that stemmed the tide of water coming into our basement.
