OMG i'm so glad i was a philosophy major and kept all my old papers. i'd be sinking right now in these marx analyses if i hadn't. yay for remembering what hegel and marx said about the purpose of history/life and for wikipedia for filling in all the blanks.

two posts in one day?!

and i just found this poem by Chrystos about white feminism clashing with women of color. i kinda want to post a piece of it on facebook to change out the poem i have on their now, but i don't know if that will be defeating the purpose of the poem by a white woman borrowing the words of a woman of color ranting about white women taking up women of color's space.

Those tears

of a white woman who came to the group for Women of Color only, her grief cut us into guilt while we clutched the straw of this tiny square inch we have, which we need so desperately when we need so much moreCollapse )

"Help with Habits"

What the Salvation Army handed to a co-worker when he was picking up housing vouchers...

Help with Habits
Good hearted people, make praise your habit." - Psalm 64:9

If you sincerely desire to improve your spiritual, physical, emotional, or financial health - and if you want to make those improvement stick - then it's time to take an honest look at your habits.

Are you eating unhealthy foods? Ask God to help you make better choices. Do you smoke cigarettes? Ask God to help you quit. Do you spend more money than you should? Cut up your credit cards and ask God to give you wisdom to use wisely the resources He's given you. Do you focus on the negative aspects of your life? Redirect your thoughts to the many blessings God has given you, and meditate on His many promises.

Our habits make up the fabric of our days, and our days make up the fabric or
[sic] our lives. If you develop the habit of prayer and trust in God. He'll help you break the bad habits and establish new ones that will bring blessings, not problems.

Since behavior become habits, make them work with you and not against you.

Yes, because people are homeless because they don't believe in God.

one year ago...

it's really weird to think i was in tanzania a year ago, having just left rwanda a couple weeks prior.

i'm at such a different place than i was a year ago. i never, ever would have guessed i'd be where i am now. thinking about that makes me feel really excited about life and all the different options there are and avenues to potentially take. it makes me feel very in control of my life, which is a good feeling.

Rural Reflections

This is the grass your feet are planted on.
You paint it orange or you sing it green,
But you have never found
A way to make the grass mean what you mean.

A cloud can be whatever you intend:
Ostrich or leaning tower or staring eye.
But you have never found
A cloud sufficient to express the sky.

Get out there with your splendid expertise;
Raymond who cuts the meadow does not less.
Inhuman nature says:
Inhuman patience is the true success.

Human impatience trips you as you run;
Stand still and you must lie.
It is the grass that cuts the mower down;
It is the cloud that swallows up the sky.
