The Universe


It was weird the first time I saw the word Universe capitalized, as though it were some sentient entity.

The capital U Universe became for me the substitute for the God of the Christian Bible. I came to recognize that the bible story seemed just too small in the scheme of things and the vastness of the Universe became what made the most sense to me.

From rejecting the concept at first, I eventually accepted, nay embraced gladly, the idea that the Universe is making things happen.

I love the idea of the mystery of the Universe, the unending nature of it, the Universe as ultimate creator, conductor, and catalyst for change.

T is for Today

I don’t feel very accepting right now.

Life with a drug addict is apparently a never-ending opportunity to be blindsided. Maybe it would help if I had ever been one. And yeah, I have my food issues, but they don’t get me into trouble with the law. And they don’t really ever make it necessary for me to lie to people who want nothing but the best for me.

See ya tomorrow. That’s it for now.
