It Slows Us Down Again

It Slows Us Down

Met zen master Patrick on the range today
His beard a sure sign of a golf Guru
He says, "that one sounded good"
I said, "I could feel it in my bones"
Deeper than muscle
"You slowed down," he said
1 . . . 2 . . . 3
Instead of
1, 2, 3
"That's why we do this right?" I asked,
To slow down.

I had always heard about Judaism's connection to science fiction, and it always made complete sense to me. My connection to Judaism makes complete sense given my life-long love of science fiction. 

Space exploration holds existential questions for me.
