"What do you believe?"

I get asked this question on occasion. Not very often, because most of my immediate family and former friends seem to think I don't believe in anything, but on occasion. The question is usually preceded by some sort of statement about how important faith is. So far, I've been brushing this question off; my beliefs are my business, not anyone else's. But after thinking about it, I'm going to try to express a few of my beliefs.

I believe in Led Zeppelin, white sand beaches, the wind in the trees, thunderstorms, inside straights, and the Fire Zone Blitz.

I believe in laughter, and snowflakes, and good-night kisses that last until sunrise.

These are some of the things I believe in. Now tell me...what the hell do I need faith for?
