Theseus’s Ship

I initially became acquainted with the overwhelming presence of G-d in a heap, on the floor, under a blanket. I had all BUT completely train-wreaked my life by the time I was a young adult.

His appearance changed from the inside out, right before their eyes. Sunlight poured from his face. His clothes were filled with light.
