Hello Beautiful. If the world's gonna run me over even when I've gone along, then I'm gonna stare down the bulldozer and sing my battle song. Alien, Alien, Alien. "...a palace of aliens without a city is no more a city; it will never be rebuilt." Isaiah 25:2. An abandoned mansion has a thousand stories to tell. Why is it abandoned and who lived there and why was is it abandoned? What's been left behind? How did something so valuable end up in ruins? The body is the house for the soul and it is abandoned when we depart. What about waking up one day to find you are a stranger to your life? What you thought would make you happy, now that you have it, doesn't make you happy at all. What if happiness is not to be possessed but lived for the moment like the wind on your face or the sun rising through the trees and all the grasping in the world won't capture it. When the still small voice calls your name, will you abandon an old life for a new one? Can you? So hungry for life yet easily led into places that dull and drain. The masters at playing games with ourselves, our motives, thoughts and dreams. Why are there questions that I instinctively avoid? They come anyway, bouncing off my mind like words off a computer screen: "Wake up Neo. They are coming. Knock. Knock." Why does a shaft of sunlight through a broken window into an unlit room that no one has entered in years seem like the perfect starting place for a journey? "Prompted by faith Abraham dwelt as an alien in the land which was designated in the promise of God, though he was like a stranger in a strange country." If the world's gonna run me over for being who I am, then I'm gonna stare down the bulldozer and make my final stand. Alien, Alien, Alien. Goodbye Stranger.
