I’m not sure why, but I’m conscious of failure lately: the big ministry dude you’ve been quoting for years as a kind of model, flies off to Jamaica with the church secretary; another pastor makes a judgment call you just can’t defend and when you express reservations, you suffer pitch-fork wounds and a good tarring..
In 1961, John Cheever wrote a hilarious, and sad, story called “The Chimera,” about a dutiful husband who made his wife breakfast in bed every morning.
