My main blog: Ramblings generally focuses on telling a story via photography and words. These stories generally center around family, nature, and church although sometimes just about life in general. I also have a blog entitled Fingerprints. I post less frequently in Fingerprints. It serves as a catch all of anything that does not go in my Ramblings blog including memes, quizzes, and reports on books and movies.

The road awaits
Time doesn't
The road beckons
Time steps forward

Will we move
In step with time?
Will we step forward
Shaping our time?

Will we take time
To see the present?
Will we explore the past
And understand our heritage?

Will we laugh?
Will we wonder?
Will we touch?
Will we feel?

Time flies on
We have choices
Shall we go fast?
Shall we go slow?

We shall go forward
But we will choose the pace
We may dance with all our heart
Or bathe ourselves in a setting sun

God JR. by Dennis Cooper

Yesterday, I finished reading a short novel entitled God JR. authored by Dennis Cooper. It's a story of a father working through his grief. His teenage son died in a car accident caused by the father. The father sought to come to terms with this loss through going inside of a Nintendo game that his son spent lots of time playing. As he enters this Nintendo world, he keeps interviewing the Nintendo game characters in hope of discovering the son he lost. The book is a bit weird yet I think that it does give some insight into the workings of this kind of grief.
