Desire and Regret

The Ears of Sundry Gods


"But though there were different names for God in all the different languages in the world and God understood what all the people who prayed said in their different languages still God remained always the same God and God's real name was God."

óJames Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

The most prized attribute of a deity is an acute sense of hearing, when we speak of our desires and regrets.

There was noisy din of prayers uttered on September 11, uttered in hopes that they would fall on the ears of the various gods who thrive in the human heart.

Prayers at cross-purposes seemed to cancel each other out.
