Life is Long

"Some people say, 

'Life is short,' 

that you could get hit by a bus at any moment 

and that you have to live each day like it's your last. 


Life is long. 
You're probably not gonna get hit by a bus
and you're gonna have to live with the choices you make
for the next fifty years."

- I Think I Love My Wife
(transcribed from the motion picture)

The Entire Human Community

"Thomas Berry writes . . .

Any human activity must be seen primarily as an activity of the universe and only secondarily as an activity of the individual. . . .

For the first time the entire human community has, in this story, a single creation or origin myth."

- David Leeming. Myth: A Biography of Belief. Oxford University Press, 2002 pg 161

- Original quote taken from Lonergan, Annie and Caroline Richards. Thomas Berry and the New Cosmology. Mystic, CT: Twenty-Third Publications, 1988. pg 37

It's almost back to school time.
Thought I'd share this with you.
Love this track (which is weird since I am a teacher)
But it's funny.

"Mom, I Can Babysit"

Angela: "Mom, I've been alone with Danielle before."

Patty: "Yes, and I can't help but recall the time you put her in the dryer."

Angela: "Oh Mom! That was so long ago. I can't believe you're still talking about that...Anyway, she begged me to do it."

Patty: "Whoever's idea it was, I don't want to come home and find anyone in an appliance."
