I am Kelly Park.
Writer and Artist doing time in a cubicle nation.
I grew up in a fairly non-religious home - meaning my parents didn't drag anyone to church and really didn't talk about god unless we had questions. The one question I remember asking my Dad about god was "do you believe in god" - his response was "I believe in a higher power". So my parents were awesome!
Even though I had a non-religious upbringing - I have still spent the last 20 years or so searching for the "correct god and correct religion" to believe in. I find the only way I can make my brain have the kind of christian faith I thought would save me is to read only christian books, listen to only christian music, think about only christian things .... I realized very recently that that is what a cult is. The second I read or think about any other interesting topic - poof my faith vanishes like smoke in the wind.
So here I am. Honestly I am mourning time lost to "god's will" - words not written and art not created due to my believing that I am where I am doing what I am doing because it was god's will for me to be in a cubicle nation. The realization that it's all up to me is freeing to say the least.
Hope this wasn't too much of a ramble. Not enough coffee I think.
No, clearly nowhere near enough coffee. Nurse! Start an I/V caffeine here, STAT! [grin!]

Hi Kelly. Glad you made it here. Look forward to hearing from on the various and sundry discussions we have in this little island of sanity in, as you describe, a cubicle nation.
Thank you Pat :)
Nice to meet you.
Patricia, Nice to meet you also :)
Welcome, Kelly. If modern work involves a computer it usually involves a cubicle. This must be the modern office. LOL
