Ok, this is going to be an odd, scattered, post- but those of you who have been reading my blog for a while probably aren't expecting anything else.
See if you can follow the breadcrumb trail of my thoughts without getting totally lost....
This post started because I wanted to give a shout out to my Darling Hubby (DH) Doug for starting his own blog "Fumbled Returns".
The interesting thing about (DH) starting his own blog is that he has always been the type to say "why?"-"why would anyone want to write a blog?" "I don't get it".
So, his starting a blog gave me 2 separate and unrelated ideas for posts-
1) a list of reasons why people "blog" - (I have been thinking about this quite a bit lately because many bloggers- *myself included* seem to hit a "blogging" slump around the holidays, questioning what they should blog about) (it is also timely because I read Zan's Sirius Sighthounds blog this morning and I think her post is a wonderful example of one of my "reasons" for blogging :-) http://siriussighthounds.blogspot.com/2009/01/memory-maelstorm.html
I do believe there are right side of the brain reasons for blogging- and left side of the brain reasons for blogging. If you stop over to visit Doug's blog I think you will find that many of his posts are very left side of the brain type posts, while I am ALWAYS in my right mind- sorry could not resist. More on this topic later.
2) Then, just being silly- I thought "I wonder how I can tie Doug's blogging in as one of the "signs" of the end of times/ Armageddon." Just because this topic seems to be very much in the forefront of our "collective unconscious". (familiar with the web bot project?) The History Channel probably threw that project completely off. ;-)
Anyway,.. I start trolling for these "signs"- Nostradamus, Mayan calendar, and of course my only true source of prophesy- The Bible.
Well, obviously I did not get my silly- "end of the world" post written
I did find the following:
I Timothy 4:1-3 "men who... advocate abstaining from meats which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth."
