1. "… not the biological episode that collapses it all into a nanosecond of being and not being, but the slower arc of our leaving, the long goodbye… It is like the decommissioning of a great battleship."

    — Carla Bley on Charlie Haden

  10. And we scrawled across the cold wet sand
    With our bare feet: “We Told You So”
    And watched the waves steal it away
    (NMA, but reminded me a real event)

  11. Whoever you are, holding me now in hand,
    Without one thing, all will be useless,
    I give you fair warning, before you attempt me further,
    I am not what you supposed, but far different.

    — Walt Whitman

"I’ve been a deep believer my whole life. 18 years as a Southern Baptist. More than 40 years as a mainline Protestant. I’m an ordained pastor. But it’s just stopped making sense to me. You see people doing terrible things in the name of religion, and you think: ‘Those people believe just as strongly as I do. They’re just as convinced as I am.’ And it just doesn’t make sense anymore. It doesn’t make sense to believe in a God that dabbles in people’s lives. If a plane crashes, and one person survives, everyone thanks God. They say: ‘God had a purpose for that person. God saved her for a reason!’ Do we not realize how cruel that is? Do we not realize how cruel it is to say that if God had a purpose for that person, he also had a purpose in killing everyone else on that plane? And a purpose in starving millions of children? A purpose in slavery and genocide? For every time you say that there’s a purpose behind one person’s success, you invalidate billions of people. You say there is a purpose to their suffering. And that’s just cruel."
