a mad world of piracy

the world in which i work involves pirates. no, i have not been watching "pirates of the caribbean" lately, and no there are no parrots riding around on my colleagues' shoulders. but if you look closer, deeper, you might catch a glimpse of ol' bluebeard lurking around here and there in an office cubicle. not to mention at one point, bliss (yes, a colleague of mine is named bliss- be nice, he's a good chap) did have to wear a black patch over one eye, but that had more to do with his cornea getting scratched accidentally, than any sort of johnny depp fixation.

i feel like the turbulence of things around here is about to bring interesting things to the surface.
lately i have grown increasingly restless with the way things are turning out and find myself on unsure footing. as i had lunch with a friend today and discussed my uncertainty, i made a remark that in times when you feel out of control, it's the best thing to realize you are out of control.

"because then you realize God is in control, and then, at least for me, it helps me to settle down and not get so stressed out. it's like getting your car re-aligned. when you take your hand off the wheel, your car will continue to go straight, without provocation or veering to the right or left."

as i said these words, something like peace washed over me, allowing me to be reminded, to see that i don't have to live a life of trepidation. nope, i need to tap into the abundant life like the kegger it is. so pour me off a cup and then maybe i'll have another...

Your latest post reminds me strangley of a song called Tennessee by the band Arrested Development

"I ask you lord why you enlightened me
Without the enlightment of all my folks
He said cuz I set myself on a quest for truth
And he was there to quench my thirst...but I am still thirsty."

Don't give up your thirst!

Peace out,
"The Crazy One"
