I know a monk,
living between Cairo and Alexandria,
who has let go of all earthly possessions
including the name his mother gave him.
He told me the story of how
she phoned him on his Nokia 6600
and told him that she was going to visit
and he told her not to come
because he had let go of all earthly attachments
he prays, draws saints and the Son of God
and sits at an old, beat up computer
and teaches himself
how to use photoshop.
