Seeing life from behind,

Hopefully finding it fine,

Losing touch with the realistic,

Believing in good old Saint Nick…


Allowing the self some leeway,

Waiting to hear what you have to say,

Even as it comes from the within,

Never does one see forthcoming sin…


Once past, sin does seem to dissolve,

Around us the earth does not revolve,

Of this sin no one can for us absolve,

It takes a great deal of living & life,

For us to eventually evolve…

Thinking outside our normal perspective is healthy and necessary to keep life balanced. It ain't always easy though. Patrick

We are from whence we came–opportunistic predators. When we get wealthy because of it they call it good. When we get unhealthy because of it, they call it bad. Whatever you call it, you and I both have it.

I liked this as it shows the more serious side of Mr. Matlack and of course the part about believing in Saint Nick is good for business...ho ho ho.

are impure thoughts a sin??
Is getting in touch with oneself a sin?

Hah! I have decided, Ed, that unless we do things to others, most of our sins can be dealt with by rote. Nothing stays the same, yet everything stays the same just under different names and different rules. I maintain, that unless we hurt other with our puny "sins" it matters not, unless of course we sin against the state or the government, then we will be paying for our sins in a physical manner as we look out the bars and say, "Damn, why'd I do that?"
