It is an empowering and overwhelming sensation to watch your own life, being completely disconnected, where you’re watching yourself as a third-person character in a movie, rather than a first person in your own skin. Under the guise of a movie, there are twists and turns in the plot, heroes and villains, alternate endings, retakes, and other events of production that had all left me feeling canned, or on the cutting room floor.
My childhood is made up of a series of flashbacks; happy times in slow motion, peppered with darker voice-overs that create just enough irony to foreshadow the... Read More
Shakespeare had seven stages of life, but I have settled for six acts on one stage...
The First Act – Innocence: You are running free, a child, with images from past lives and guardian angels vivid in your mind; the imagination free, the strong spirit of enquiry to take those earlier experiences to their next stages of evolution, the constant asking of “why not?” and the fear of being sanctioned by elders who keep admonishing you to “behave.”
The Second Act – Rebellion: Past lives forgotten, with this life becoming more important: the pleasures of adulthood, awakened sexuality,... Read More
It's New Year's Eve so I thought I'd share what I think my cats' resolutions will be for 2012!
Bilbo says: Cuddles with Mummy! Nothing is more important than that. I leave my food, toys, bed, warm spots when Mummy comes into the room. Sometimes I chew her hair but she usually stops me because I like to eat it. So maybe my resolution will be to find a way to groom Mummy more. But then, I might lose my cuddle time! I'll stick with the cuddles!
Frodo says: Meow! MEOW! I think they can hear me next door now and possibly even in the next street. Daddy calls me the Opera Singer.... Read More
They said to me, “Walk!”. My feet wouldn't move, frozen by the accident. Appendages that normally would make me useful, mobile, independent, I now drag them along, taking care that I don't injure them, leaving me bleeding or with an undiscovered infection. The accident, as I call it, was not an accident. It was a purposeful intended act, inspired by lust and hate. They did to me that which I cannot tell, the acts so horrific. Regardless of the details of their brutal incursion, what I was left with was a handicap, one of the mind, not the body. Having to make do with a shredded normality, crawling... Read More
Sometimes I find myself telling a pity party tale of woe about how my big sister used to be so mean to me. It's true- I've suffered much pain at her whim, as I was apparently a very annoying little sister. But none the less I find it only right to take a moment and defend my dear (big meanie) sister. I know it can sound pretty bad. The things an older sibling will do to a younger one is often shocking. And like I said, I often tell it like it... was. So now and then I really feel the need to make sure folks understand that not only is my big sister someone I look up to, she is a dear and... Read More
22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly[a] I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
Jesus, our example for prayer, prayed . "Every thing is... Read More
