Tuesday is for Thomas

Merton wrote:
“The more we persist in misunderstanding the phenomenon of life, the more we analyze them out into strange finalities and complex purposes of our own, the more we involve ourselves in sadness, absurdity, and despair. But it does not matter much, because no despair of ours can alter the reality of things or stain the joy of the cosmic dance which is always there. Indeed, we are in the midst of it, and it is in the midst of us, for it beats in our very blood whether we want it to or not. Yet the fact remains that we are invited to forget ourselves on purpose, cast all our awful solemnity to the winds and join in the general dance.”
How about this for a less than spiritual, nonetheless cult-ish dance for the ages? Thanks Napoleon:
