Tuesday Thought

Not that I have anything really meaningful to say this morning. I took the AM off to work on some pressing school stuff. I am making progress, but there are still many miles to go before I will reach my resting spot for the day.

Over the weekend, I was reminded of a book that I read around this time last year. gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson. I pulled the book off the shelf, and turned to one of several post-it flags I use to mark things that I find interesting. I am not sure what I was thinking when I marked it, but it seems relevant for the day.

"...This is real life. You can't stick a quarter in someone and push their nose and get any candy bar you like. People don't work that way. I mean, sure, there is cause and effect, but it isn't predictable." - p.80

Two thoughts:

1. God doesn't play dice. -Einstein

2. Men plan; God laughs. (Can't find the source...)

Is it all really so random, or is it all more like a vending machine afterall? There's some ridiculousness for you.

I may not call you Joe, but I totally read your blog.
