    What does your comment about poetry have to do with this diary? And why do you say the diarist is not a "spiritual person" (whatever that means)?

      for spirituality. It's not a disturbing comment, but I did find it peculiar.  I think the Christian right also has a distaste for spirituality. They are unable to handle metaphor. Science  uses metaphor to explain difficult concepts of time & space.  Spirituality is a slippery word. But I believe many experiences can be considered spiritual ones apart from any belief in the supernatural.

      •  Hm, maybe you meant to reply to a comment. (0+ / 0-)

        I see a comment expressing that, but not the diary. Also, I see a different commenter's sig line that mentions poets. Personally, I avoid using the word because I'm not sure what meaning people try to convey with it.

        I find that many people can embrace whatever they view as spiritual, and as a matter philosophy I find a greatness in so much of the worlds religions.. it doesn't mean that I buy the religion, but I definitely buy the fact that people can see beauty in the world that goes beyond our simple ability to define it.
