“To gain mastery over reality is to create a mythology worth living for. Your head is the space from which all meaning derives. It is the shaman’s – and writer’s/artist’s/musician’s [my addition] – role to shine light on that meaning in order, like a wind-up doll, to make you go.” – Thomas T. Hills

Hypocrisy and lust for power appears to be a great barrier between those who claim to love God, and God.
Sounds like yet another reason for me to #vote #no #Republicans
The Truth of Fact, the Truth of Feeling by Ted Chiang — Subterranean Press
“People are made of stories. Our memories are not the impartial accumulation of every second we’ve lived; they’re the narrative that we assembled out of selected moments. Which is why, even when we’ve experienced the same events as other individuals, we never constructed identical narratives: the criteria used for selecting moments were different for each of us, and a reflection of our personalities. Each of us noticed the details that caught our attention and remembered what was important to us, and the narratives we built shaped our personalities in turn.”
Sorry, but I think EVERY Republican candidate should apologize for their voting records and their support for Donald Trump.
