Ted Gresham's Blog – February 2012 Archive (5)

Pissing in the wind...

I've been around the block.  Because I have an obsession with knowing things I have learned things I wish I didn't know.  Human ignorance and depravity are far deeper than the average person, whose head is stuck firmly in the sand, can even fathom.  For every "good thing" there are a thousand opposites.  I've learned things I cannot tell any other person for fear it would fuck up their head permanently, as mine has been.

Excerpt... The Bible

I have not quite gotten around to writing a blog here yet, my lethargy and procrastination bites too much lately, but I do have a Wordpress blog I have written a few things on.  This morning I posted an excerpt from an old book I wrote.  It's a short piece about the Bible.  I'll post it here, too, for grins:
