Legion, a movie review

What I saw and loved so much about this movie was that one, and only one, angel choose to stand against the orders of God. Not that it is a good idea to try to defy God but because of the reasons behind his defiance. I won’t quote but, basically Michael fell in love with mankind at the very start – when God created them and choose to pour his love on them. Michael understood God’s passion for mankind and made loving and protecting us his life’s purpose.

Our Song

I’m a little fuzzy on the events when it became our song. All I remember is that I played it in my 1966 VW Bug often. Truth is, I would fast-forward the tape to be ready to start on this song on a moment’s notice. I’m sure I thought I was sly to be able to slide the tape into the deck and it just happens to start playing at “Our Song.” I’m also sure she wasn’t fooled…

My Father's Yucca

In Florida you can have a very dry and hot few months followed closely by weeks and weeks of heavy rain. Each of these had tried to kill off this Yucca only to have it emerge victoriously again. A few months ago I assumed it gone for good. The last of it’s trunk had simply tipped over and fell out of the plastic pot and had clearly died. I remember when I noticed it pausing briefly to remember it’s long fight for life and to think of my dad. This should have been the end of this story. But it’s not.
