There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.

Linus

The joke being, in the above quote, that the Great Pumpkin is Linus’s religion. But he had always been somewhat spiritual, quoting Bible verses & whatnot. So have I, and whenever I start talking about the Great Pumpkin I lose a few social media followers. Well: lose a penny, gain a penny.

Good morning (afternoon or evening, depending what dot you’re at in the space-time-perceptual grid). One of the things that has become clear to me after 20+ fully adult (more or less) years on this planet is that I’m much better served being a “bridge” figure to others of different Reality Tunnel polarities than playing to one ideological side or another. Which is all to say: I’m a bit of a “liminal” figure, aren’t I?

The control of anxiety has to ultimately be a spiritual discipline, the cornerstone of which is Faith.

Me

On this day in 312, Constantine the Great had his famous Vision of the Cross, though accounts of the exact chain of events & envisioned symbol vary. A few days ago, I had a dream that God was the late comedian Richard Pryor. Where is my religious cult? (The dream, of course, fits in with my overall belief that Jesus was actually far funnier than people give Him credit for.)
