ts1-5: journey

                      5

              Everyone
                 is on a journey
                      to somewhere.

              The question
                      is where.

This is a pretty poignant for me right now since my direction as of late is something I have been thinking about. I have really been throwing myself into my work lately, like 10 hours a day alot of the time and though I am making some pretty good progress I am really seeing it as a major focus in my life and have been questioning whether or not I want to be one of those people people who works all the time.

for: boiling

I got this chickpeaesque devotional from my dad and though not awe inspiring it did give me a moment’s thought, so I decided to pass it on.

ts1-4: shades of peck

         There
            is
              no
                event
              in
                your
                    Life
          through which
               God is not
                      trying to
                          communicate
                      with you...
                to wake up.

This reminds me of Peck’s maps of reality. If god is that which is and being asleep is being out of contact with god then whenever you act and you are asleep then you will likely encounter resistance in some way (albeit small most of the time and likely, due to your slumber, beneath your perceptions.)

dj: working

I have been throwing myself into work a whole lot over the last week or so and it is causing conflicts at home. I am trying to figure out where the root of these things lie and what the best way to deal with them is. Specifically what is going on is I am spending a whole lot of time and energy working and not what S wants me to be spending on her.

Things came to a head somewhat last night. I was at work for 9 solid hours actually doing some pretty complicated stuff and when I came in I was tired and read for a while and then went to bed. S and I did not talk much during this time and today we fought some about it.

ts1-3: awareness

             3
     My nine year old feet
         destroyed
             the ant-hill.

     Something in me
         objected.
     I haven't been
         the same
             since.

for: from salon on the tax plan

http://www.salon.com/politics/feature/2001/02/15/buffett/index.html

This is an article that I thoughts was interesting; apparently “[William H.] Gates has gotten at least 120 millionaires to sign a petition opposing Bush’s estate-tax repeal, on the grounds that it would ‘enrich the heirs of America’s millionaires and billionaires, while hurting families who struggle to make ends meet.'”

William H. being Bill’s dad. The article goes into alot more detail, but I agree with it on the whole. I think that paying down the deficit is a whole lot better idea than tax cuts given our nations financial status and knowing the economic issues that are going to have to be faced with the demise of social security.

sj: intellectual property

I am going to write just a bit tonight. The only discipline I added for lent is an imitation of B’s writing discipline. I was for a long time prioritized such that growth was not on the front burner, but that season passed and I went in to actively avoiding it and so I will write a bit to get back on track some.

I don’t really want to write though; I’ve been coding for the last couple hours and I am making only slow progress. I would rather play there than do this stuff, but I am committed. Grr. =)
