Distress
and anguish
terrify him;
they prevail
against him,
lie a king
prepared
battle.
[Job 15:24]
********************
"Everything SCARES me,
LORD!"

[CALM NOD.]

"I'm SCARED!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Where ARE YOU?"

"I'm Right Here,
child."

"No, You're NOT!"

[GENTLE SMILE.]
"Not what,
My child?"

"NOT!
THAT'S what YOU ARE!
Yu're a Big NOT!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"YEAH!"

[PATIENT GAZE.]

"You're not HERE!
You're not THERE!
Yu're not ANYWHERE!"

[PATIENT SIGH.]
"Then what
are you,
My precious?"

"A bundle of...........
(Smile up at air vent.)
eh.....KNOTS?"

[CHUCKLE.]

"SERIOUSLY, Lord!
(Squint up at ceiling.)
How about that
COSMONAUT that
said when he was
out in outer SPACE,
that he didn't
SEE YOU?"

[SILENCE.]

"How about THAT?"

[PATIENT NOD.]

"HUH?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"What ABOUT it?"

"Where was he
looking,
My child?"

(Squint.)
(Munch on some
microwave rice.)
"Eh.....I DUNNO.
I guess, it was.....
like.......
out that lil'
spaceship... WINDOW?"

[NOD.]

"Well......
where WERE You,
LORD?"

[PAUSE.]
"Where was HE...
child?"

(Impatient frown!)
"WELL......
(Ornery glance up at ceiling.)
out in outer SPACE!"

"No, My child."

"Uh, HUH!"

[GENTLE VOICE.]
"He was in the same
place you are."

"YEAH?
Where's THAT?"

[TENDER VOICE.]
"Right Here:
In My Arms."
************************
In the beginning
God
created
the heavens
and the earth.
[Genesis 1:1]
