Church - safe place
Suffocating oppression, manipulation, superficial relationships, wasted years
All religions are cults.
Winston. Landscape. A missing feature in politics. Word up Ward. Twenty Questions game. The elephant and the three blind men singing gospel ... I'll stop there. Churches themselves are just buildings. Monuments to a god, yes, but its the believers that change its value. Some churches are made to seal away an evil power rather than contain a loving sanction. So maybe when I see church, my mind jumps here first: argument, perpetuation of perspective.
My daughter who sat behind me 10minutes ago tell me how she got "saved" last night. I didnt mock or scoff, i just listened. I also did it at that age. Rather be an open minded church goer than a closed minded sheep following another kind of crowd.
Gothic-era stained-glass windows at Reims Cathedral.
Weird. WAIT. Grapes make wine, which is consumed during holy communion.
Faded flower-print dresses with shoulder pads. They smell like moth balls.
love, hope, faith, ....all the spiritual principals that i need to live by
