It’s too bad that a rockstar can’t be god–perhaps more things in this world would go right. It seems as though Tracy has gone ahead and told the world about me and I wasn’t even ready for it. This got me thinking–is Tracy always this premature? Well, I am not sure I can answer that. But, I do know that Tracy is always one step ahead of me. She is sort of like a guide who walks in front of me in the jungle, hacking down the brush with her machete, and thus creating a clear path for me. She was published before me, she was in writing groups, she took Randy’s creative writing class before me, we did goto Sage Hill at the same time, she was a mentor (with Judy) before me (I was with Shelley), she has a book before me, she had a blog before and now she has announced my blog before I could! How dare she. I haven’t even editted that Soveran poem on the main page yet. I haven’t even filled out all of the important pages that so desperately need words to fill them. I haven’t even taken enough pictures to last for days worth of viewing. I haven’t even thought about what I should blog about today! Yet, I have posted all of it and so perhaps I am the one who is premature and Tracy is just a good friend.
And now a reading from Tumbleweed:
“God would have us know that we must live as those who manage our lives without God. The God who is with us is the God who forsakes us. The God who lets us live in the world without the working hypothesis of God is the God before whom we stand continuously. Before God and with God we live without God. God is weak and powerless in the world and that is precisely the way, the only way in which [God] is with us to help us.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship
And now for something completely different…
