Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this:

To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction,
And to keep himself unspotted from the world.

---James 1:27

No matter how many times it happens, I am never used to people knowing my name and multiple things about my life when I don't recall even seeing them before. "Oh, you're Odessa, aren't you? And you. . .(etc, etc,.)" I am left guilty as charged, with no clue who the person is.

Is this what it's like to be a celebrity?

Okay, or not.

If you're eating a peanut butter sandwich, it means that you're lonely.

If it sticks to the roof of your mouth, you're extra lonely.

It's a silly tug-a-war between me and myself
Sensibility keeps my feet glued on the floor
But imagination is blowing a breeze through my mind
Lifting my face in a smile
Like a little yellow balloon in a blue sky
That sails away to the unknown world of lost balloons.
Though Logic and Reason confer responsibly together,
Laughter and Humor are amused
Telling each other secrets that make Reason stop to listen
And frustrate Logic, who is not heard anymore.
Another childhood friend has just become a father for the first time.

Congrats on your baby girl, Jonathon!
The old man kept motioning with his hands every time I walked past his table. Though he was in full possession of speech, he insisted on gesturing at me. I'm not sure if he didn't want to talk, or was just giving me a hard time, but how was I to know that his wildly waving arms meant he needed a napkin?
I admit to my blog being painfully silent as of late. Well, as of the last month. I can't say I have any particular reason for the silence. No tragedy, no depression, no vacation, no work-a-holic bouts (a.k.a last summer), and no stupendous happenings that have made me forget my blog. I think perhaps I've just come through a phase where writing to myself was more important than writing to the world, and spending time with my family and my music was more important than spending time with this blogging template. However, I am back. More to come soon...
