Following in my son’s bouncy footsteps, I am going to post a smattering of thoughts along social consciousness lines. Yes, believe it or not, I do realize that the world at large doesn’t revolve around him.
- The power of snark wasn’t enough to give love an edge over ignorance, recently, giving me yet another never-surprised-any-more-yet-always-amazed moment. A good lot of my thoughts (beyond George Takei being awesome) relating to the “Don’t Say Gay” Bill aren’t even coherent enough to put into words, but I will say this:
You know, a lot of parents of autistic children obsess over whether their kid will ever find romantic love, will ever even be able to potentially experience it as most of us can. We don’t, but you can bet that if Ash is ever blessed enough to meet his match — no matter WHAT their sex or gender — we are going to be feeling something far more along the lines of exaltation, than damnation.
- Then you get this whole business about the end of the world being on Saturday. No really….this time it’s going to happen when it was predicted to. Really. It is. Because we’re just not going to think about what it means to have to admit that we’re ever wrong about what a higher power intends for or from us, ok?! And, um, it’s not that The Gods / God / Jesus have procrastination issues or anything, either. We just….keep being given more chances, or something. Ok, well then:
I wish those obsessing over TheEndOfTheWorldOnSaturday would at least take it as incentive to be better people. Instead, there seems to be this reflex to get in as much judging-of-others as possible before they are judged in TheRapture. Rather counterproductive, I’d think, since as I understand it, Jesus wasn’t a big fan of that behavior.
….What? Too judgemental of me?
- Here’s something to keep in mind while we’re still around to do some good:
A vital thing to keep in mind if you’re a blood donor — consumption of allergens too soon before giving blood can trigger allergic reactions in the person who GETS your blood! This is NOT something screened or filtered for yet.
- You know what? I think the world needs a little more time to watch things like THIS…
