Re: religious faith

I don't mind talking about religious faith, I guess it is part of my witness.

As angry as I felt at Clay and Jimboloco I never once had a...

Re: religious faith

Clay had lots of faith. He even had faith in America :cry: 8) Sometimes I did not know whether to laugh or cry at some of the things he believed about America. For instance he believed we were the good guys always willing to come to the aid of peeps everywhere to defend freedom. I would get so mad a...

Re: Jam in honour of Lightning Rod

for Clay for me you are in a better place it was during the time that you were so busy dying that was hardest to bear. I could not let you go I was flashing back to thanksgiving day 1984 that day my rose of san antone rattled her last death rattle, funny how many old people die at the first glint of...

In the meantime I think about old gospel songs and The Idiot, in Nietzsche, amor fati, and eternal return and life ever after on the other side with fity miles of elbow room f...
