"The universe is no narrow thing and the order within it is not constrained by any latitude in its conception to repeat what exists in one part in any other part. Even in this world more things exist without our knowledge than with it and the order in creation which you see is that which you have put there, like a string in a maze, so that you shall not lose your way. For existence has its own order and that no man's mind can compass, that mind itself being but a fact among others."
Cormac McCarthy

I have been occupied of late.  I have not been able to post much of what I have written nor read much of others.  There are so many of both that if I think of it I feel a sadness.  But there are books to read, places to be, jobs to look for and children who need attention,solace,information and guidance.  It is what it is... but to any and all that cross these pages..... I will bless you even if god will not.  Now..... if you add a beer you will have something of value..... my blessing is worthless and will not make you drunk.

What I learned in Church

So I found myself in church one day and the minister was doing a sermon, as they often do, and this day he decided to do a little visual.

Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.

The second worm was put into a container of cigar smoke.

The third worm was put into a container of chocolate .

The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.

At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:

The first worm in alcohol
 - Dead

The second worm in cigar smoke - Dead 

Third worm in chocolate  - Dead 
Fourth worm in good clean soil -  Alive
So the Minister asked  - 
What did you learn from this demonstration?

Well, I don't go to church often...or extremely seldom at best, but I raised my hand and said:

'As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!'

.... and we ate eggplant, too!

I had a perfectly nice weekend.  I sat among pines ... and burned some of them too.

I ate animal flesh seared by open flames and  encased in buns.

I enjoyed a beverage holding deep meaning in my native state.

..... and realized that as screwed up, messed up, as America is.... there are good places.  I need to find them more often.
