That's what I almost named this blog. Seemed a bit too violent or desperate for me, because, after all, life's not all fighting. Sometimes it's thinking. Sometimes it's forgetting. And sometimes, it's just sitting back and thinking to yourself "This is life". So no, this isn't about the art of fighting. This isn't about how to survive. It's not even about how to live. This is what it's about:
It's about the past, and everything that you learned, and how it's helping you to learn now.
It's about what you remember and what you've chosen to forget that you'll probably have to remember later (whether you want to or not).
It's about what's happening here and now and how your past affects your future and how your future turns out as a result.
It's about all of those old songs you learned in sunday school when you were young that you still try to remember, and what to do when you've graduated from sunday school. When you're too old for "Jesus Loves The Little Children" and you've learned to spell "The B-I-B-L-E"
This is a metaphor.
This is a hymn.
Because this was an introduction, the actual "new" post is below.
