From the other side of the clouds
Suddenly there were words in my head, and then, like a wisp they’ve left me. There was a picture of emotions I had to explain the whole phrase, but now I’m left with a memory. A vague picture of something resonant, something that struck a harmony within my inner fabric but I can’t find that note again. All I have for you is the phrase, the trigger. But when I click it on this time, nothing happens. Gone, so fast, just like that. Words are so goddamn elusive.
It makes me wonder why writers resort to vices when they can’t put two words together to tie their shoes. Do they think that scotch invigorates their imagination? All I ever get is a desire to get fatter. A desire to be more slovenly, and yes I had to look that up to make sure I was correct. Slovenly it is. I don’t get new words or fresh ideas, just a fascination with the nothing. A thought about no words and no places. Like a room with no doors and no windows where the prisoner is kept for a thousand eternities. No words exist there. No thoughts exist there.
I had a thought, but it escaped me. Someone stirred the waters with another stone as soon as one was dropped. Instead of a wave of ripples, you have an earthquake and fault lines and cracks. There’s nothing moving below the surface, just a couple of old stones resting on the bottom. At least I got this. At least I said something. But I sure wish I could tell you what it was like, to be on the other side of the clouds. I sure wish I could explain heaven and hell. And like that, the waters are calm. He dipped his staff in the water and where the drops fell, the continents formed but I suspect when he was done, there was still nothing more than was there before.

5 Wierd things about me:
1) I prefer to use bathroom facilities to do the number 2 in public places. I like the sense of privacy in a stall and prefer industiral toilets and toilet seats over home seats. I'm also afraid of stopping up toilets. How embarrasing is it to use the plunger? Or, if you aren't careful the toilet overflows and you have dirty water everywhere.
2) I blow my nose less than 10 times a year.
3) When I drive, I like to know why everything happening on the road happens. So when a car flashes my lights at me, I get a little nervous if I can't figure out why...
4) I check email incessantly. Often, I don't respond to emails that go to my inbox for a couple days.
5) I can read a 400 page pulp-novel in less than four hours. If I read a book I usually finish it in less than three days.

HAHAHAHHA. So you all know I eat ice from my soda alot. I like it. So I decided to see "why." www.icechewing.com I'm pretty sure none of the above. But the scientific name for the desire to eat ice is fun. Maybe I could be that. It begins with a P, that's all I remember. HAHAHAHA. Sorry, I'm laughing at what some people feel is a real disorder, but then again I'm not running to the freezer looking for ice...|

blah... So I'm in favor of in general being like the following: People are going to say or do things that aren't always coherent and that's a fact of life. Being coherent usually places you outside of any major mainstream group, in my opinion. Anyways, so I hear about a film and one thing leads to another and I look up this website and find articles, and here is a fun one: http://kidsinministry.com/Articles.Teachings/WhosToBlame.html|
So thats interesting... I dunno, I guess I just don't prescribe to the theory that our lives should be problem free. So finding yourself in a major calamity isn't the result of someone's fault all the time. I'm just perplexed by why someone would think that we could possibly avoid every major calamity to come our way. I mean, if taht were true then it would be Jesus' fault for being crucified, right? Like he knew what was going to happen, and so if he did then he should have avoided it. Maybe she's 100% right. Maybe disaster can be avoided in just that way. I guess my idea of God's providence is different than hers. I see it as God can give grace in that he averts us from tragedy, but if we aren't averted or if we miss the signs, I don't then think that we're somehow at fault. The world is a broken place, and things will go wrong on a regular basis. I don't agree with her, and I think her reasoning is a little off. It's also worrisome, she runs a children's ministry... How is it that people who are gifted to do certain things so well always take other responsibilities that aren't theirs to take.
Its like with musicians who are expected to say something spiritual while they do concerts, or ones who feel that expectation. Sure, its a good thing when a music group can make a witness through what they say, but their primary calling isn't theology. That makes them liable to say something totally wrong just because they feel the pressure to do so. If people stuck to the things that they are called to do, which also are the things that mix best with their personality, and let the other jobs be done by those who should do those jobs, then maybe there would be less silly junk floating around. Blah.
