My Little Lion
Sunday. 4.26.09 11:50 pm
My little lion, come to your sheep
Let us lie a while, let us sleep
Let your eyes roam over me
Leave your paw on my side
Give your heart for my holding
And let your pride die
Then when I see you as clear as day
I will kiss you face and we can play

Icarus, Icarus, I loved you my Icarus:
the fool who dared the sun.
I saw an angel, but to my despair the wings will help you run
Run from the world to the arms to the sighs to run and finally be done
But there is my Icarus, my beautiful Icarus flying right into the sun.
Now on the rocks you lie dying
As Sirens sing sweet, in your ears
But I trust that I will die crying
If you ever actually hear
Your mouth is still moving in a feverish haze
and death is still clouding your bright blue gaze
and as I bend down I hear you say, “The Sun! The Sun! The Sun!”

And I'm not sure why... I am still trying to figure it out and... I'm loss for an answer.
Anyway, here is a little poem I wrote:
Find out what you are, my friend, and you'll find out what you'll be
I for one am magma that dares the chilling seas
On the surface I am the fire that does burn and sorch the land
And the wretched die in anquish as I silence all their plans
Quiet and determined, I rage beneath the earth
To anger I give counsel and to passion I give birth
Though I am but magma, I do not choose to be
And so I crawl determined, down into the sea
I will caress the chilling waters and my skin will start to cool
And though my fires burn inside me, by this quarry I will pool.
So, when I find them sleeping, from their burning I'll be free
And as his waves caress me, I will also warm the sea
Slowly he will shape me and whittle me away
My surface will be cleaving to the patterns of our play
Perhaps he'll work inside me, making houses there
And I'll give birth to fish and eels and flesh and other fare
But should he dare consume me, my anger will start to glow
And he will feel me boil, long before I blow
And on a mountain of fire, I will rise out of the sea
So be careful my dear ocean, I am magma, I am she
You can love me my dear ocean, but you cannot devour me

Just because God is omnipotent...
Friday. 3.27.09 9:57 pm
...it doesn't mean that he's a push over.
I was reading a section of this philosophy book on the atheist philosophy (because I am interested) and it talks a little about how "If God is a good, how is there evil in the world". They say that logically, if God is good and he is omnipotent that means that he will stop evil. Now imagine this: a child is teasing another child on the playground, the other child is getting angry, but it wont say anything. Finally, it gets fed up and punches the other child. Now, say there is a playground administrator and she knows, because she knows kids, that if that kid keeps on going on like that its going to get socked, but she lets it happen anyway. Why? Is it because she cannot stop the fight? Surely not. It's because the kid will think twice about doing it again.
The fatal flaw of humanity, of course, is that it is tremendously stupid (I know this because I am part of it). While we may 'get it' when some kid hits us in the face that maybe we deserved it and the kid might 'get it' after the playground administrator yells at him that this isn't the only way and not the most affective way to get his point across, but our creative little 'logical' minds love to squirm out of what seems harder and gravitate to what seems easier. This is why I have a religion. I know, with due humility, that I am certainly not as smart as the generations upon generations of moral founding which first layed out the consitution of my holy book. And while I do not always understand why things are the way they are, I do understand that its worked for other people and I'm not really adverse to predicting actions based on positive results. I suppose some atheist may still think that this philosophy makes me stupid and who knows, I may be, but as Socrates says, "The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing." That's just a small piece of advice from a very smart guy.
I become a LARPer
Monday. 3.9.09 5:39 pm
So, I have elevated my nerdom status and I am now participating in a World of Darkness LARP. (I'm a big fan of the system, the acting based concept and the horror theatre is excellently thought out) So anyway, there were only five of us there because of the fog/snow that was blanketing the state at the time (though not in Boulder... because it's Boulder), and so it got a little slow here and there. So somewhere towards 11 I get into this conversation with lady about rasing kids (in reality, not in game) and she says that you can definitely improve on how your parents raised you. I said that I wasn't sure if I could which launched a very interesting discussion on how she felt she improved on how she raised her kids. I didn't have the heart to tell her that the reason why I said that was because my parents were so damn good at it!
