LAND OF UNLIKELINESS

NATIVITY AT NIGHT Geertgen tot Sint Jans Early Netherlandish painting, c. 1490

He is the Way.
Follow Him through the Land of Unlikeliness;
You will see rare beasts and have
unique adventures.

He is the Truth;
Seek Him in the Kingdom of Anxiety;
You will come to a great city that
has expected your return for years.

He is the Life.
Love Him in the World of the Flesh;
And at your marriage all its
occasions shall dance for joy.

–W.H. Auden, from “For the Time Being,” a Christmas Oratorio

“If I had no sense of humor, I would have long ago committed suicide.”

–Mahatmi Gandhi
