millstone

“You came of the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve.” said Aslan. “And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest begger, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth. Be content.”

– C.S Lewis in Prince Caspian

house of cards

All i wanted to do that night was to cut those red capsicums. It was so methodical. Three cuts along the seam of the capsicum, then one across the face. Cut cut cut cut in the bucket. Aaron gave me one of his sharp knives to cut them too. I was facing the edge of the kitchen, with my back facing the customers, my knife in hand, cut cut cut cut in the bucket. The speakers were facing my way too. The kitchen i work in is an open kitchen, so that means when we have music playing, it has to be really soft, otherwise the customers can hear it, and thats no good. i can’t remember what was playing, all i remember is thinking that it was good that i could hear the music. Cut cut cut cut in the bucket. Continue reading

‘Laughter is carbonated holiness’ – Anne Lamott

everlasting scene

So I have come to this critical decision in my mind that no matter what is going on around me, whether there is a cyclone right outside my window or a dog peeing on my right foot, the scriptures need my time.

We can never know, so we may as well try to make the best of it now while we have it. Continue reading

how far we’ve come

No matter how much we try to manipulate stuff, we as humans can’t change time. i don’t care how many sushi restaurants you own, your getting older and you have less and less to loose. oh i don’t want to start this year on a depressing lets-be-critical mood, but maybe thats the way it needs to be. i think this year is a year where a lot of us wake up to reality, where we slap ourselves silly and start to make changes so we can facilitate attitudes that will change the world. haha, are you sick of idealistic nonsense from this blog?

older than i was before

Silence has become the new black for me. walking down after my tute today i followed myself to the second level, just cause i’m the curious person that i am. I have classes on every level, except this level. i walked in and yes, the level was quiet. So quiet in fact that all i could hear were my own footsteps. I walked around for a little while until i found a set of chairs, red chairs, lined up against the wall, waiting for someone to sit on them. I thought i’d give them some company and went to have a seat. Continue reading
