I lost my faith several years ago when the whole house of cards fell in. Now I'm wandering in this post-religious wilderness, and I'm finding a sacred beauty in the mushrooms and wildflowers that grow amid the shadowy ruins.

If you want to make pumpkin pie, you need more than just a pumpkin. You'll needs eggs, milk, and sugar and other sweeteners, just to make the filling. You'll also need a crust (flour, water and butter), a pie pan, a hot oven, and about 40-45 minutes. On their own, none of these foods is as good to eat as they are in aggregate. (Still true for most of them, even if you don't like pumpkin pie.)
It may be Pollyanna-ish to say this, but it is the season of hope after all: working together we can do amazing things.
