New Year’s Day, 2013. I have blogged very little for the last couple of months because I feel too tired to think. My son is in the Navy, so I am applying to be officially his dependent, which has been practically the case for quite a while, so I can be on his health insurance. I don’t feel like reading. A copy of “Master Leaders” by Barna is sitting by my feet, and I am most of the way done with it. When one can barely get oneself going to do a few basic things in a day, the wisdom of leaders responsible for a lot doesn’t seem very relevant.
One of the few things I have done lately has been watch television. I’m a sports fan, but I’m sick of watching sports, as I really don’t care about most of what I see. As for news, we went over the “fiscal cliff” last night. This is a great example of extreme speech. When you go off a real cliff, you’ll be dead in a few seconds. With this, we walked onto a rocky slope. On a real rocky slope, one can still fall down and hurt oneself, even very badly. I wish I could deliver a group insult for their work. My thinking is that, if one works at McDonald’s, one messes up once in the first few days, one gets a stern warning, mess up a second time, you’re fired. Most of our politicians in
are there as they get paid far better than McD’s people, for work that would get
them fired. I think of a line from a Larry
Norman song, “Don’t ask me for the answers/I’ve only got one./A man leaves his darkness/When
he follows the Son.” Washington
