Things that make ya go hmmmmm....


"I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church."

Thomas Paine


I find it interesting how many of our founding fathers and their fellow patriots, as well as many other great leaders and thinkers (such as Abraham Lincoln) were men who had deep faith, with little to no desire to be part of religion. I do enjoy the church we attend, but I also understand how church membership is very different than spiritual faith.

Tattoo Art

I love looking at tattoos. I wouldn't get anything done that covers major portions of my body, but I love seeing the images and translating some of them into other work I do. It all ties into that grungy, urban, graphic look that I love in my digi and paper scrap supplies. This page on Live Journal has some links to some pictures of some really cool inkings.

Muzzled


"It's one thing for the forces of political correctness to muzzle our day-to-day lives here at home in the US, quite another when that same cancer metastasizes into the war on terror."
I am looking forward to reading this book. I saw him on the The View today, and was very impressed. Muzzled

Everybody's Broken... ain't that the truth!

"Everybody's Broken"
Bon Jovi (Lost Highway CD)

Welcome to the party
Come on in and disappear
You're feeling like a stranger
But all your friends are here
Little lines and cracks
Around your eyes and mouth
Something's trying to get in
Something's trying to get out

It's ok, to be a little broken
Everybody's broken, in this life
It's ok, to feel a little broken
Everybody's broken, you're alright
It's just life

Step into the deep end
Make yourself at home
When you wonder why your breathing
Know you're not alone
It's so hard to believe
It's easier to doubt
You're trying to hold it in
But you're dying to scream out

It's ok to be a little broken
Everybody's broken

In this life
It's ok to feel a little broken
Everybody's broken, you're alright
It's alright, it's just life

[Solo]

Take a look around
Tell me what you see
Is who you think you are
Who you want to be

It's ok, to be a little broken
Everybody's broken, in this life
It's ok, to feel a little broken
Everybody's broken, you're alright
Just keep on going
Eyes wide open
Everybody's broken
Everybody's broken
Everybody's broken
Everybody's broken
Everybody's broken
Everybody's broken
Yeah
