salvation

Salvation, salivation. Yearning, drooling for it. But…. What does it mean to be saved, to save or rescue the self? Mostly it is about being rescued from what…life? And why would we want to be saved or rescued? The loneliness, the uncertainty, the difficulties…. Only, if it were possible…why would we need rescue. If we knew everything when we came into this world, we wouldn’t have had to come at all. Salvation is taking life head on no matter what, no matter the hard days or the jubilant. We rescue ourselves by embracing it all the heavy with the light. No one saves us. We save ourselves.

side

As in to take a side. Aside, something you don’t want those on the stage with you to hear butu the audience does. Side…snide…hide…abide.

Taking sides. Too much hard and fast on one side of an imaginary line or another. No real dialogues, monologues everywhere. Goes with the narcissistic territory made possible by the digital revolution. No radio, MP3 players. No newspapers, pre-filtered, tailored headlines. Nixon let others read the dailies for him and tell him what they said. Same but worse. On the wrong side, the far side, possibly the dark side of the moon.
