Friday Morning Flashbacks

4:30am...not the time to be conscious...nor the time to feeding a cat that doesn't understand it's too early to be meowing for food. Worse yet, he's my in-law's cat who has been allowed to speak freely. If he were mine, I would have "shoed" him multiple times before he ever thought free speech was allowed. Oh, don't even suggest a shoe or other non-lethal device to throw at him now. Living in a townhouse offers a strategic advantage to the animal - all he has to do is sit on the stairs and propel his annoying meow-venom until someone responds.

It's easier for me to awake these days with a web relaunch project, news HD conversion project, and way too many other projects. It's "The Great Push" that I anticipated when I got here.

Rainy morning drive...even at that hour, there's still plenty of obstacles - errr, people - on the road. Radio offered a strange journey down memory lane...first, Guns 'N Roses "Welcome to the Jungle" - a late '80s flashback that seemed appropriate enough a song for DC and that it was playing on DC101, the local rock station that sometimes stops my radio dial...
Then, a familiar tune - Blink 182 "I Miss You" - I first heard the tune here (http://www.angelfire.com/jazz/rebeccaglahntribute/rebeccamix.mp3).

Wow, it's been just over a year since Rebecca Glahn was murdered. I realized this last week and was pleased to know that Q107.5 in Memphis was doing a tribute. Having a friend murdered is a first for me.

Finally, for those in Jackson who went to a Jackson Bandit's hockey game...you likely heard the opening to "Intergalactic" from the Beastie Boys. Whoa, talk about a where-are-they-not-now moment. Of course, I never have heard the song after the "roboto"opening...yeah, there's no need to suffer that pain again.

I've loaded some more pics of "G" in the Photos/Georgia On My Mind folder. More to come. As always, let me know if you have trouble opening anything.

It was wonderful returning to Jackson briefly last week to see Kim and "G" - my baby girl keeps growing! Also, it was nice to visit JTV with my two girls and see, if only briefly, some great friends. It was Georgia's first visit and she was quite the attention-grabber.

No new news on the house...as with all things, there is a reason.

Finding Clarity From Swamps

Did you know you can find clarity from swamps?

I shared recently with a friend who is processing a difficult situation that he and I were in our own "swamps." It's difficult, frustrating, confusing, easy to get bogged down, scary, and has lots challenges. But if we weren't there, we would never learn what the Lord is trying to teach us.

My layoff is like a swamp.

Where Are You, iEmanuella?

One of the things I love about the web is finding fascinating people and resources. Last week, a video was shared on my Facebook feed. You can see the first thing that I saw below, a young girl showing words on card. Like me, you've probably seen dozens of these. I chose to watch it out of curiosity. The video wasn't just a story of a young woman growing in her faith, it was also a call to action. A challenge to love people first, regardless of their choices or if they agree with you. At the video's end was apparently the girl's online identity in white text over a black: iEmanuella
