“The zeal fizzled.  The fire in my bones became only an ache in the joints….My joyfulness became jadedness.”—Mark Buchanan in Your God Is Too Safe

We know it too well:
The day the music died
And suddenly “And it was all yellow”
Has bled itself dry
And the silence beats eardrums
Like waves on a rocky shore
Or a pair of purple mums–
The deafening muted roar
Is much too much to bear;
I need to need to hear.
