Adapted from a popular column originally published as "San Francisco's Spiritual Examiner" at examiner.com. "What if God IS the story?

And what if we each have this ardent inner suitor who's writing us love letters every day that often go unopened?"

Because it's noisy around here. Too many hookers armed with bongos.
