Ridin’ Drag: “Behold, I show you a mystery”
When you ride drag it’s all a mystery. You don’t have the luxury afforded the folks on point. Dust rises. The backsides of copious bovines serve to create a vision barrier. Your olfactory senses are inundated. You are the last to know when trouble rears its head. You get to thinking about what’s across the river, around the bend. You have the need to know.
But life is more about what we don’t know than what we do. So what’s in store for 2014? A mystery for sure. Here’s the good news.
“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face”
So as we face the new year’s mysteries, let’s face them with faith, hope and most of all, charity.
