#\ A night of shooting stars. I drifted, watching them, and forgot my sea anchor. This morning I woke with the tree well to the west.

The children returned from the yard, somber. Apparently in their zeal for eggs, they brought a shovel; not something I anticipated when I buried him.

Without the time machine, I would not have known how sanitized Mel Gibson’s version of Easter really was. Canceling trip to the Nativity.

As Jesus emerged from his tomb, he greeted the time tourists warmly. Sally jabbed her brother in the ribs. “See? I told you.”

Letter from the future: Save the chocolate bunnies. You’ll need them when Jesus comes back. He’s really, really hungry.

I loved chocolate bunnies until I found out that humans aren’t the only species that enjoys deciding what to bite off first.

They crucified the first one because He loved. They crucified this one because he hated. What arose 3 days later was anything but human.
