Sometimes I call upon Rick James for spiritual grounding. I think of the billions of stars and the billions of galaxies and the earth’s speck of real estate in that mapping, and I wonder if there is life elsewhere out there. And what a miracle it would be if there wasn’t anything but us. And THEN in that very same context, I think about Rick James. Rick James floating out here amongst the infinite. That in the same way the universe created the earth, the mountains, the moon, it also created someone like Rick James. And how beautiful and sweet and chaotic and humorous it all seems to be. The forces of the universe created all of this and it also created Rick James.
