Home: The Toast

Day I

You open the first window. Now something is open that wasn’t before. What else is opening that you don’t know about?

Day II

You open another. So many eyes, ready to wake up. What will happen when they’re all open and looking at you?

Day III

You can’t stop something that wants to be born. What’s in that wants to be out. Open the next window.

Day IV

Your hand is something a window uses to open itself.

Day V

Close a door, open a window. Close a window, open a door. What’s out can still get in. What’s in can still get out.

Day VI

Today’s window was already open before you got up. Wasn’t that thoughtful?

Day VII

Light a candle today. You do not know what day the Lord will come. You must look everywhere.

Is it now? Is it here? Light a candle.

Day VIII

“Be sure of this: If the master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So, too, you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.” What else don’t you expect?

Day IX

Time passes with or without your consent. Open a window.

Day X

You can fast in expectation. Would you like to fast? You’ll fast. You didn’t want to eat anyways. You avoid the fridge. It’s humming so loudly. You need to keep your focus.

Day XI

Penance and expectation. What will you ask forgiveness for first?

Day XII

Sic transit gloria mundi. Sic transit you.

Day XIII

“You know the time,” Paul writes. “It is the hour, now, for you to awake from sleep.” What else is waking up?

Day XIV

Redeem the time, for the hour is evil.

Day XV

So many things have to die before the year dies. So many things have to die for other things to be born. Newer things are coming.

Day XVI

Eating less means wanting less. Eating nothing means wanting nothing. Want nothing, want nothing, want nothing, but expect everything.

Day XVII

What are you letting come in?

Day XVIII

Open a window.

Day XIX

Open a window.

Day XX

Open a window.

Day XXI

Where will you go, when everything is open? Will anything be open for you? Something’s coming in, which means something else will have to go out. Make way. (Everyone has to make way for the risen Lord. There is room, but not for you.)

Day XXII

“I have the right to do anything,” you say – but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything” – but not everything is constructive.” But the right is still there.

Day XXIII

Something is coming out! Something is waking up! Something is coming in! Will you welcome it?

Day XXIV

Will you welcome it?

Day XXV

Hello.
