If only the snake had told those two about lust and then let it go at that. It's mortality that hurts. Any fear, I suppose, but the idea of our own demise has to be the worst. In my bible the snake would be rock'n'roll. That's where all the lust hides. Thank goodness.
I met Hoppalong once when I was a little kid back in the '50s. I just stared at him and tried to figure out if that was really him. I'd never seen him in color before.ReplyDelete
