OK, I went ahead and posted it as is.  Your blog is quoted and linked.

Thanks--now it's my turn to be flattered! Reading your blog and poetry is, well, kind of exhilerating for me, actually.  I hope I can do it justice when I mention it in my blog!


I wish my blog post had been enough to re-inspire me into vegetarianism!  To be honest, I think I might be able to do it if it were more practical.  I didn't mention in my blog that when I told my husband I wanted to try it out again he just laughed and said, "Yeah right, with the rest of us eating meat?"  Bleh...  I'm not willing to cook 2 meals at this point and he's not willing to go vegetarian, but maybe I can figure out how to do it, as long as I keep cooking everyone else their meat. :/

I love your blog and poetry.  Do you mind if I mention it (and linke to it) in a blog post of mine?

I enjoyed meeting you in the chat room yesterday. Thank you for joining Lord of the Rings Atheists.

I just saw your comment about your dad living in Texas.  Ughhhh...SO many people here think that way!  There are churches everywhere, and so many of them are these huge, gawdy mega churches.  Be prepared, because Jesus is coming soon--next year, in fact--and then the rest of us will surely be tossed into hell.  At least that's what a little girl told my son at school. ;)  My dad and my father-in-law both happen to be crazy fundamentalists, too, and pressure us to "accept" Jesus, lol.  So much fun...

Thanks for the compliment. I've only been drawing/painting for a few weeks, so I'm just amazed I can create something halfway recognizable!


I didn't mind Manhattan much when I was there, but I was a lot younger (well, 6 or 7 years younger anyway). My ex was stationed at Ft Riley so we actually spent about half our time there.  I don't think I could stand it now, though, seeing as how I'm having trouble getting used to San Antonio, TX, which is enormous compared to Manhattan.

I lived in the little apple for a couple of years. How's it treating you?  By the way... what are the odds that a person living there would comment on my photo??  Coincidence...or perhaps evidence that there is divine intention out there???  ;) Lol

Life just got too hectic for the approach I was taking. When I started I was living alone in a different city, so I had all the time in the world. Then I moved back home and I had a full time job and family and friends and it just got a bit too hectic. I plan on continuing reading it when I get more time.

My advice is to read The Message (which can be found on which is an easier translation to follow. Also read the annotations in the Skeptic's Annotated Bible ( Some of the stuff on the SAB is kind of grasping at straws, but it keeps tabs on a lot of the continuity issues in the bible.
