I'm not the Trinity anon, but I was just thinking the phrase "spirit of Emily" would make for a beautiful poem title. Oh for a bit of inspiration,though...

My closest friends could tell you that the spirit of Emily is like a big soft dumb golden retriever with a tail that keeps knocking important things off of tables and shelves. Not so much poetic as maybe not 100% housebroken.

Can you explain the Trinity to me?

Probably not thoroughly, because I’m just some loser on the internet, and not an actual theologian, but it was explained to me pretty simply when I was a kid. 

So there’s God, right, the concept and being of God. We set on that? Good. Coming under that heading of “God”, we have the Father, the generator of all things; the Son who is begotten of the Father and who intercedes between the Father and a planet full of confused fuck-ups; and the Holy Spirit, who I’ve always understood as an emanation of God’s will and being. The spirit of God, in the same way I have a spirit of Emily. However, in the Christian tradition, the Holy Spirit, unlike mine, can fill individuals, and alight on them, providing gifts of prophecy, and interpretation of divine purpose.

None of these beings are the same being, but they’re all inextricably One. Think about it like an egg: we have a yolk, a white, and a shell. A shell isn’t a white, and a white isn’t a yolk, and they don’t serve the same purpose. But they’re all an egg. 

Just like God.

Maybe someone else has already asked you, but how do you feel about FX's The Americans?

I’ve never seen it! I’ve heard good things, but I think I’d probably be more interested in something set around the Cuban Missile Crisis, rather than the mid-80s. Just a personal preference, honestly. Also, I’ve read one or two interviews with the creator, and he’s said that he’s really in this to tell the story of a marriage. The spy shenanigans and international tensions are reflections of a relationship, which is cool, but ultimately if I’m going to turn up, I’m going to turn up to the Cold War as a thing in and of itself, not as a marital metaphor.

You're inspiring me to do a humanities concentration in Russian studies / history. You're awesome and I wanted to tell you that. So thanks! :D

This is a really wonderful thing to hear today. I’m so glad I could spark an interest in a subject as wide and rewarding as this one. Good luck!

“I’m not your enemy, really I’m not. I realize that investing your trust in someone else can be difficult, but the fact is that the story has been about nothing but you all this time.
There’s someone you’ve been neglecting, Stanley, someone you’ve been forgotten about. Please, stop trying to make every decision by yourself. Now, I’m not asking for me; I’m asking for her.
This is it, Stanley, your chance to redeem yourself, to put your work aside, to let her back into your life. She’s been waiting…
That’s her, Stanley. You need to be the one to do this, to reach out to her. If you can truly place your faith in one another, then pick up the phone.”
