    I really enjoyed the Fathers Day Poems. Very touching. Today is not only the anniversary of our dad’s death but the second anniversary of Barb Gember’s father’s death. Her dad had been sick for years. Being nurses the bulk of his care fell upon Barb and Steve. Barb’s father also had seven children. Like our father he was dedicated to his family and was a beacon to his children. It feels like an otherworldly fraternity to which we belong. Maybe things happen for a reason.
    Love you Brother

    So, I was reading this FAQ about smaq thang here and I look up into the right hand corner of my screen and I see/read:

    wrestling with congruency

    And I wondered, can congruency wrestle with congruency?

    I am thinking, the human body has to have congruency to stay a form and we seek this so much.

    It’s like some biological imperative but we can actually think about it.

    So, since we can have a “consciousness” of our congruency we can then become incongruent and wrestle away.

    Okay, I am good now. I had to think that one out loud.

    Hope that is okay.

    Thanks Kim. Interesting biological perspective. My perspective on this was more of a mental/ spiritual construct. In short, the struggle to practice what one believes in. And further, that what one believes has internal logic from one point to the next. For instance, I find it incongruent to be pro-life and pro-death penalty at the same time.

    You know, I think “too much”, by this I mean thinking is like breathing for me and I steamline well.

    I think your struggle to be concsious of living what you believe is why I come here. I focus on that daily. I have a job that is a perfect place for this also, I am grateful for that part of the job.

    Internal Logic!


    May I adopt this phrase? I would love to share it with my friend who is rather scientific about life some days. This might be a good communication phrase for us.

    I have a pyramid approach to things and life. Anything living has a biology then we go from there. I do not think we are just biology though. But in this here and now biology is alive and kicking. If that makes any sense!!

    I also find pro life and pro death penalty incongruent and have yet to make sense out of this place people occupy.

    Thank you,

    Your commentary very effectively points out very real problems in modern-day society. Despite its simple nature, the words you write and your very careful use of artistic elements drive an extremely powerful message – one that cannot go unnoticed.

    I would love an opportunity to speak with you – but have been unable to locate how I can contact you. Can you please send me an email?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Chris, thank you for your kind words. I have emailed you regarding contact.

    I have not been to this post since 9/26/06. I see I never responded to kim’s last comment. My bad.

    This post could use some revision.
