That's What Christmas Is All About

And the angel said unto them, 
Fear not, for behold, 
I bring unto you 
good tidings of great joy, 
which shall be to all people. 
For unto you this day
 is born in the City of Bethlehem, 
a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. 
And this shall be a sign unto you; 
you shall find the babe 
wrapped in swaddling clothes 
and lying in a manger. 
And suddenly there was with the angel, 
a multitude of the heavenly host, 
 praising God, and saying, 
'Glory to God in the highest, 
and on Earth peace, 
good will toward men'.    

Luke 2:10

“Women are like tea bags. You never know how strong they are until you put them in hot water.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

Cosmic Awe

            Every two minutes, a picture of the Earth, the Moon, and the Sun — a 360-degree panorama of the heavens — appeared in the spacecraft window. And I’d studied astronomy, and I’d studied cosmology, and I fully understood that the molecules in my body and the molecules in my partners’ bodies and the molecules in the spacecraft had been prototyped in this amazing generation of stars — in other words, it was pretty obvious … we’re stardust.” 

~ Apollo Astronaut Edgar Mitchell

Electronic Dust

“I expected it to have collected some kind of electronic dust. Like hearing nostalgia of a decade I had slept through. But ethereal things do not age, and no one warned me of the imminent spiritual movement that accompanied this album.” 

-A Man reacting to Radiohead’s “OK Computer” after listening for the first time in 2012 (15 years after its release)

I want you to know that it is not always easy to love me. That sometimes my chest is a field full of landmines, and where you went last night, you can’t go tomorrow. There is no manual, there is no road map, no help line you can call; my body does not come with instructions, and sometimes even I don’t know what to do with it.
This cannot be easy. But still, you touch me anyway.
