It puzzles, saddens and angers me that there is so much feigned outrage over a YouTube movie trailer, which is still being reported as the cause of the violent protests and the murder of Americans, but the same people, who seem to understand the “frustration” and “outrage” over a movie trailer on the Internet (not shown in their home towns or houses or worship), plead for tolerance and understanding for Pussy Riot, calling them a “girl band” rather than a protest group, though their actions were to violate and desecrate religious paintings, artifacts and houses of worship—in the midst of services. How can the two responses be reconciled?

Untwisting my thoughts, refocusing my actions, laying in a new course, maintaining wonder and delight, laughing at the absurdities, because life is too serious to take myself too seriously. I say things I shouldn't, stay silent when I should speak; hate politics; love God, though not enough; love my family, again, not enough; love my friends, who deserve more, read way too much and not enough; study way too hard because I'm still learning how to study smart; and capture the world in words and photographs and try to make a living in between.
