February 06, 2013 - In keeping with the #Glory-Be-Project
I've not done more than scribble words and ideas in the last few days - since the end of January - but today I sat down and felt a little less lost, a little more complete. I picked up a scrap that I had jotted down on my way to work a few days prior and felt that I could do it some sort of justice and expanded upon it. Only fragments remain of the fragment, just know that it began with thoughts of the future, the vagaries of perception and the unpredictability of life tempered with desire and belief. You don't have to be able to see the future to be able to believe
in it. I don't have to know
the outcome of years-from-now to promise to you the man that I am now and, hopefully, will be.
Oddly enough, I find that even with the rampancy of religion of other callings of faith that people often marginalize and underestimate the threads that bind us together as people and the beliefs that can come out of that. If you will believe in me then I... whom am I kidding? I will believe in you whether I have your faith or not. It's just my nature.
This will be retired to scraps as soon as I can find the heart and time to give it a proper form and format. January felt so long - I am surprised that I still have anything to write about!
For the inquiring minds, this is in part inspired by Hammock's Ten Thousand Years Won't Save Your Life as so many things are, these days. The imagery was vague, cosmic and distant, but very much full of emotion.
