This World you live in requires gods and goddesses (something to do with its radiation signature after the Big Bang). Today, it’s your turn on the pedestal. Twist your head slowly, elegantly, as if it were made of plaster. Use your power for good, not evil. Deliberate, believe, discern: these are your rules for the day. You dispense hope. You offer courage. You lift people up. Tonight, when you can lay down the rod and globe, you might think more kindly of the difficult decisions that others made yesterday, the day before and so on into the darks of the past. Or maybe not: you may have finally found your calling. Personally, I can’t think of anyone who would do a better job. Thank you, in advance, for being your generous self, even under all the stresses and strains of the top job.
