The Place where Imagination becomes Reality

[ This entry originated from a page titled » Are We Really in Love .. or Does it Just Feel that Way? (Sept 9, 2017) ]

» A Function of Being in the Right Place at the Right Time?

Dont you feel, sometimes, that these most improbable of things seem to be very much a function of » being in the right place at the right time?

» The Eddie Glenn Story

Remind me, girly, to tell you the Eddie Glenn story .. which is a story about being in the exact-right place at the exact-right time.

The Eddie Glenn story actually ties into what I was telling Selena .. how you need to keep doing the work .. toward personal growth .. even when it is difficult.

And even when you can't see any immediate advantage to doing so.

» Complicity

See, if you dont call it out and dont publicly denounce it .. then you become » complicit. Complicity is defined as:

Complicity is the thing that allows bad people to continue doing bad things to innocent people for so long.

Heil Hitler! (with exuberant enthusiasm)

Complicity basically means that you are » part of the problem. You are morally culpable .. even tho you dont want to admit this to yourself.

The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn

[ This entry originated from a page titled » Some Truly Awesome Wailing in Boston (11.Dec.2016). You must admit that today's entry makes for a cool title. I am very much into cool titles. ]

» There was a Boy

There is a lyric in the song Nature Boy, which I first heard in the movie Moulin Rouge! .. which says » The greatest thing you'll ever learn .. is just to love and be loved in return.

Loving, and being loved in return .. what a rabbit hole that would be. On the one hand, the concept seems so obvious and so simple. But it's not.

The concept itself is simple enough .. the trick is in the execution.

Alien: Covenant

I dont know if it's thee #1 greatest thing ever .. but, it's definitely up there with the greatest things that you can learn. No doubt about it.

I mean, any conversation about values and priorities is naturally going to include a discussion about loving and being loved.

Girls Who Inspire You to Up Your Game

[ This entry continues from here » The Games Begin (Sept 3, 2017). ]

Oh, look .. here you are during this pause .. at the 2017 Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball, held at the O2 arena in London on Dec 10.

Taylor during the pause in Ready For It Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball London Dec 10, 2017

This live-pause here feels even more pregnant than the official studio version. It is definitely a stadium-rocking song.

Look at this look that you are throwing here. This must be a very cool pause for you here. The crowd certainly reacts to it.

Look at the look in your eyes here. This is why I grabbed this particular shot.

The look in your eye here says, "I will have this man, and I will have him now. Take him back to room number one and get him ready. And dont be slow about it, either."

» The Endless Compromises that Christians Must Make to Continue Dealing with the Devil

Speaking of fake believers .. what do you think, George, about this interview that Chris Hayes did with Atlantic staff writer McKay Coppins?

Where they are talking about McKay's new piece titled » God's Plan for Mike Pence.

God's Plan for Mike Pence by Atlantic writer McKay Coppins

I thought of you, George, when I heard McKay say about Pence (at t=2:45) that »

"He really is a man who believes that he has a sense of destiny about him .. that God wants him in the political realm. And when you think like that, it's easy to make a lot of compromises, and rationalize a lot of things."

Can you see why these statements about Mike Pence make me think of you? (I bet you can.)
