Religion was one of our great enemies and our downfall, not only looking at the present time but throughout history. The rising tide of violence seemed to have, more often than not, a religious fervor involved in it. On the other hand I think of science. I don’t think science has been at all the great saving grace as a human species as we have made it to be.

The Only Power Strong Enough

 

Carly Elizabeth is seven months young today, just this week beginning to pre-crawl. I wish I could be so attentive, persistent, focused, so sensitive and aware of everything instead of being preoccupied with all my stuff. Carly craves engagement and it is truly one of the most challenging tasks as a parent to keep up, to stay in the present moment, to share this experience together right now. Oh, how easy it is to give that demand for complete engagement over to some mechanical or technological thing, but at what price?
