I miss the days when I could fly by the seat of my pants.  I hate being responsible and being prepared.  I just like to show up and throw stuff against the wall and see what sticks.

Unfortunately, I have come to the realization that I can't live my life that...

My greatest temptation at this moment is to go off on politics and world affairs.  I have opinions on the things of this world like everyone else, but I find myself being lead to withdraw from politics and world affairs instead of diving headlong.

Hate is a strong word and we teach our children to not hate.

I sat down on Monday (as I do every Monday) to talk with our organist/pianist to go through music. It is our routine and it how I start every week in preparation for the next Sunday.

"Love hurts". "Love...If you let it go, it will come back to you". "Love is meant to be given away". "Love is wasted on youth".
