Current

I feel for any family that loses a child, but you have to wonder about a kid who would climb a pylon. I mean the things SMELL of electricity. You can hear it, it sings through the lines. 66,000 volts.

It feels like a time of astral activity. It feels as though there is a surge in the force. Or maybe it's not the force, maybe it's my own gravitational field. People around me - and I don't mean in any geographical sense - are experiencing blips. Sometimes major blips. I'm trying to centre myself to send out some electrical pulses of my own. Positive vibes, prayer.

The vicar talked about Time this morning. How there are two Greek words for time, Chronos and Kairos. The former is the time that flows, the background, the current and currency of time. Kairos is the moment, the turning moment of the pendulum, the moment when change happens. So the cross, in addition to all other symbolism, gives us the horizontal line, Chronos, intersected by the event , the vertical line, Kairos.

Perhaps my experience of Chronos is being disturbed, like the rumblings of deep seismic activity.
I'll mentally work on that visual.

In spite of her being a Republican, I SO want Sarah Palin to work out. I am willing her to be a real contender. But she does seem to be a complete and utter nutjob. Barking. On the other hand, a comment of Kat's on her blog a few days ago, made me think.

"I lived through the Reagan years and in no way do I think a 'pro life' President will take away a woman's right to choose. It just isn't going to happen."

Last night's SNL opener from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler was brilliant and worth watching. You have to sit through the ad for Regenerist first, but oh well, we're worth it.

well thanks! Not to worry. I still have bitter grapes over Hillary but I wouldn't throw everything to the dogs to spite Obama.


I will look at that link and your entire post in the am. Got to go.

I said pro choice? lol

I meant pro life and I will make that correction on my blog.
You must have noticed my error?

whatever,
Our right to choose is not for the government to legislate.

I had an abortion in the
80's. I stand by my statement the way I intended it.

I can't stand voting on hot button issues. Even if it is the flip side of the coin. I won't whore out my vote on one single moral/social issue or even two. The evangelicals did and Bush owned them. There is more at stake in the world and our country than abortion and who people want to join in civil unions with.


You can change my comment to 'pro life'

thanks

You know what? I've read it several times and every time I read it as you intnded, 'Pro-Life' which is a misnomer anyway, what those ppl really are is 'anti-choice' but I will alter your quote.

I recommend Eve Ensler's article on Sarah Palin:

thanks! and I loved that skit btw.

Wow, that's a great link, thanks.

Some things just crack me up like this quote from the Huffington Post, "Sarah Palin does not much believe in thinking."

It wasn't meant to be funny but I found it humorous but I found it so.:)

I think I'll have to check the facts on that assertion on factcheck.org
