It was night and I was out with some friends on a trip to Tahoe. It was nighttime and I was hanging around on the back porch. The lights were off and the stars lit up the sky. It was beautiful.
Staring at the stars something came to me. I heard lots of people say it makes them feel so small, but sure there was a part of that but I also saw something else. Perhaps it had to do with a current emotional conflict I had been dealing with for a bit recently. I saw constellations.
I had noticed a constellation. I think it was the Big Spoon or something, it was like the Dippers but in a different area. The lower left star was dimmer than the rest of the stars near it. If it’s too dim, it is unseen. If it is unseen, it isn’t there. People wouldn’t put it into any constellations. This causes the shape to change. From a lopsided almost square rectangle to a triangle. Triangles suck. THat’s because that’s not the complete truth. The star is there. Then I thought of all the night skies I’ve seen from the cities and places I’m more commonly present in. I can hardly see the stars there. The lighting mess of the cities just hid the truth. Hide what true things are.
I guess all of this is just very cliché, but it’s just that lost in the mess we can fade away and not be where we should be in our roles. We could hide away due to the troubles of our lives. But we’re needed somewhere. Whether it be with our friends or family or at our particular place at work. If we’re not there, the constellation changes. If we’re somewhere else, we’ll add another star to that constellation. I mean, I should know and find myself doing such things already due to living my life with Christ as my Lord. Especially with passages such as Romans 12 coming to mind. It was a reminder. A poke at that thought. When I stared up at those skies a few nights ago.
Note: I don’t really think triangles suck. Just kept the line like that for impact. Triangles are kinda cool. Triangles were not harmed in the writing of this blog.
In the modified words of Samuel L. Jackson: “Enough is enough! I have had it with these [monkey-fighting people] on th[ese] [monday to friday issues]!”
For as long as I had this blog or typed on the internet, I don’t speak politics that much. But this just peeves me. This concerns reactions and behaviors around the Judge Walker Decision on the California Prop 8 thing. Yes, I have read it. It was the silliest juggle of language I have encountered in the longest time. This suggests this, this suggests that. No particular solid facts for other sides.
See Tomorrow started out adopting a few ideas from here and there to build a Role Playing Game styled statistical way of doing things. A major influence to this system was the Fallout game series as well as the Dungeon & Dragons series of role playing games.
Some years after the world had felt the terrors of the outbreaks and battles, paper money has become less appealing across the barren and broken land.
To recap: Just read the last post! Just scroll down, it’s not so hard. Well… Let’s continue this tale.
Looks like 2009 is almost over. I cannot say that this year did not have it’s fill of interesting and life-changing events. I cannot turn my head and say good-bye to it quite yet as well. I’d like to revisit some events that stood out for me in this year. I’ll be going a few to reflect upon as a result of posting this on the blog, others will be able to read it too…
