Time for newness! (New blog, new recordings :))
So, so dope. Enjoyyy
It is vain to think that any weariness, however caused, any burden, however slight, may be got rid of otherwise than by bowing the neck to the yoke of the Father’s will. There can be no other rest for heart and soul than He has created. From every burden, from every anxiety, from all dread of shame or loss, even loss of love itself, that yoke will set us free.
To write about how I feel is a nuisance and it is unnecessarily repetitive.
Instead I will write about the warmth of the breeze slipping through my open car window.
I will express thanks to God for the clouds and the trees that provide relief from a hot sun.
I will smile slightly at the distant chatter of children coming from the park across the street.
And I will be happy – so happy – to realize that I am blessed to witness these things at all.
You want to come into my life; the door is open. You want to get out of my life; the door is open. Just one request: don’t stand at the door. You’re blocking the traffic.
Otherwise I wouldn’t like you so much.
I can’t explain it,
But you are so cool.
You are so sweet.
You are so cute.
I appreciate that you don’t feel the need to talk all the time.
You appreciate silence.
You appreciate thinking.
You work hard.
You wish you could play harder :)
I wish we could hang out.
I wish we could just chill.
I wish we could take trips together,
And listen to music,
And just be
Doesn’t that sound nice?
How unfortunate that you’ve never even thought about this!
I think we could be friends.
I think we could be good friends.
I wish you thought the same…
A boy with unbridled imagination.
With what wide eyes you see the world!
With what kindness you look through those eyes!
Adorable, yet brave.
I’m not sure that I’ve ever met an adorable warrior before
…but you are that.
I’m glad you’re in this world.
I have expressed my strong interest in the mass of the people; and this is founded, not on their usefulness to the community, so much as on what they are in themselves…. Indeed every man (sic), in every condition, is great. It is only our own diseased sight which makes him little. A man is great as a man, be he where or what he may. The grandeur of his nature turns to insignificance all outward distinctions.
(William Ellery Channing)
I recently had a conversation with some friends about the origin of life and the significance of man. The quote above states my view with clarity and supports my belief that we should take pride in the beauty of our human form, our lives, and the world in which we live.
