Save me come tomorrow
Lead me to my urgency
See I'm no more no less
Of an angel
Than you'd have me be
Steady here I cast my lines
Only to expose
A weaker sense and
Now my true self shows
But, don't bring me down
Don't bring me down
Cause there's promise
In the night
Yeah, what he said. There WAS promise in this night, but only if we had had suitable companionship. Tonight's sunset was brilliant and was of a hue of pink that would have been suitable for Jesus' swaddling clothes, had Jesus been a she rather than a he. I thought... however briefly... about running inside to get the camera and recording this sunset for posterity but I just couldn't get off my ass, transfixed as I was. So. Sorry about that.
Back to female Jesus... I have a set of thoughts about that... if Jesus had been female... but we won't go THERE. Suffice it to say I kinda-sorta think the world would have been a better place if we had had a matriarchy, instead of a bunch of sexually-frustrated priests fucking things up for about a thousand years before Martin Luther pounded his objections about the Catholic church up on the cathedral door. I can't help but think the world could have been different if we were ruled by benevolent nuns during the Middle Ages.
But that's waaaay too deep for someone who just came in from a breathtaking sunset and a night full of starry, starry skies. That and the fact I'm about half in the bag... so... disregard. Or not. I'm open to YOUR thoughts, if any. Matriarchy... promise or peril?
Added, somewhat later and after perusing the vids that accompany that which I posted, as is my habit:
Life's river shall riseHeh. No fucking way, Darlin'. Drown in it.
And only the strong shall survive
But I'm feeling quite weak
Will you comfort and forgive me
Malevolent thoughts aside, this has always been a favorite Collective Soul tune.
