Why do people say that? Maybe, for some, it’s just a throw-away phrase, something that seems agreeable and supportive to say to fill in an otherwise blank conversational space. I wonder if there are people who actually give it serious thought and actually believe that anything really is possible? Maybe. Some people are just unconnected to reality. How many people have been injured or killed jumping off high places because they genuinely thought they could fly...maybe,…Continue
There are many things for which I'm thankful, and I have no problem saying so...even directly to the people to whom and for whom I am thankful. But this alleged holiday, like all the others, really pisses me…Continue
The origin of "holiday" is a melding of "Holy" and "day"; a day set aside for special or particular religious observations or rites. Now there are many holidays, some religious or with religious ties, some completely secular.

I've decided I really would like to be ordained...again. I was ordained many years ago when I was in my "leave no stone unturned" phase of looking for God.

In a way, it did. I found that he wasn't under that stone either.
There are always…Continue
