With getting this blog back on track, that also means, with today being Friday, we have (once again)….


Today’s Feature Artist Friday is a written piece that comes to us from a good friend of mine, Dan, who is currently living in Portland, Oregon (as far as I know).  It was submitted awhile ago, and it is something I’ve been wanting to share, but with everything getting momentarily derailed here on dreaming in color, it’s taken me awhile to get to this point. It wasn’t something I wanted to be lost in the shuffle of things and just passed by readers catching up, so now that we are all caught up, I think today is a more than appropriate day to feature this piece by Dan.

I find it unique and interesting and I hope you will, too.

I also send a thank you to Dan and want to tell you that I appreciate you sharing this piece with us. 🙂


God and Magic (06-14-2010)

Wouldn’t it be awesome if you had a house with model trains running all the way through it, that stopped at different stations, and you could put messages in special cars for your loved ones? And then e-mail them from upstairs to say you’d just sent them a message by train?

Man, the frontier must have sucked.

Some days I feel like doing something really adventurous, that proves I’m a man with faith in the Resurrection and I wouldn’t be afraid to test the theory. But the second anyone mentions skydiving, I think, “that’s not for me.” Because I might die.

Sometimes I want to run away from home. There are days I wish I could spend about a year in a small Oregon town. New place, new people. Reinvent myself a little bit. Work would probably suck, though.

Sometimes I wonder if I’m supposed to lose hope on love, but something in me is either too Christian or too egotistical for that to happen.

When the heck did everyone my age start marrying? And perhaps more importantly, will there be open bars at their receptions?

Being Catholic actually made me…less neurotic. Being diabetic actually made me…realize diabetes sucks.

Is Cheney diabetic?

Bush’s administration sucked. I wish I’d cared enough at the time to learn.

Let’s face it, Barack just doesn’t deliver the same golden comedy material as Bush Jr. Much of what he says is provocative and sometimes mildly offensive. But it’s almost never Dubya-level funny. And that’s a shame. Sort of.

When liberals offend me, they annoy me like Elton John. When conservatives offend me, they offend me like Lady Gaga. I may need to rethink my pop-star analogies.

Feminism is tricky business. The word itself seems to have been endowed with some special power to induce unnecessarily volatile debate.

Sometimes, when I get really pissed and stressed, the best thing I can do is to take a walk and yell at God. He can take it.

The reality of it is, I’ve largely stopped caring about politics and have lost most of my will to vote. Politics can’t save us now. See Revelation 21-22 for the change I believe in.

I just lost the game. So did you.

I’m twenty-three, and I still like playing with Legos. Some-day I’m still going to build something epic.

Someday I’m going to send someone a message by train. I hope they send one back.
