This piece is a recollection of an enlightening moment rendered in my mother's handwriting. It brings together the spiritual and the material, the high and the low in the form of neon signage. It can be read as an industrial object, a religious invocation, an exclamation of wonder, a rote writing exercise or just an everyday curse.

I took an Existential Philosophy course years ago. One day, the professor waltzed into the room and casually declared, “T]he only remnant of the sacred in contemporary society is profanity. God dammit. Jesus Christ. Holy shit."

My mom has written in a classic Palmerian hand ever since elementary school, a method emphasizing regimentation, discipline and character. It's likely no coincidence that she learned this script at St. Brigid's, the grade school where she was taught the fundamentals of Roman Catholicism that she strictly follows today.
