I’m very grateful a friend reminded me of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

The story showed me what that scene in the Shawshank Redemption showed me: don’t wallow in shit! Of course, you need to know you’re in shit, but then keep moving toward the Light and the waters. Like the master who wrote Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and Simon Armitage lovingly translated, told us, we’re all sinners, and it’s only through our Lord, thorn crowned, that we’ll get perfect peace.
