a couple things to mention for the week

    Here's some things I hope to talk about before I head out of Erie again: 

  • Zero Dualisms, and it's ever growing effect on my life
  • The Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster, and my desires to celebrate said disciplines
  • The first year out of college struggle

    That's three things in 4 days (I'm still in Saturday mode).

    ps – Today was a really nice day.  I spent time with Nick at the Ribfest and at B&N, and then hung out with Jenny for the rest of the night.  To close, I leave you with a song by Anathallo, which has sustained a run as my favorite band for awhile, and a band I will see in August and party with afterwards.  This song has been on my heart a lot, and it'll lead well into zero dualisms later.  peace.

Cuckoo Spitting Blood

Oh, night set on when I fell down
In the corner of the field.
Cuckoo, I too sang,
Spit the blood of welling thoughts.
Waking with a hundred grains.
Salt stains ringing 'round my legs.
I could not face you.

Since I don't know my father,
I won't be a son.
In morning when words rise up
Like the echo of a stone axe,
Some demon in me wants to rise up
And walk away.

When I am alone in the day.
At night when I am going without clothes
I see your knees where I would sit,
The purple chair,
Golden trim hedged 'round.

I hid myself.

Underneath my father
With the robes of a son.
In the morning when words rose up
Like the echo of a stone axe.
Some demon in me crawled out
And ran away.

I remember when I took the gifts
Asking you for everything,
Throw your name in the well.
I sink, and sink.

Sink.
