interesting version by dj madson of the saccharine 'footprints'.

The God Who Wasn't There
One night I dreamt that I was walking along the beach with God.
Across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand.
One belonged to me, and the other to God.
But I noticed something strange.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
There was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the hardest times in my life.
I said, “God, I’ve noticed that during the most difficult times of my life,
There is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed you the most,
You would leave me.”
God replied, “I didn’t leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
When you see only one set of footprints,
That was when I carried you.”
And I said to God, “You carried me?
What the fuck are you talking about?
My dog died.
My sister got killed in a car accident.
Maybe instead of carrying me,
You could have stopped these bad things from happening at all.
Did you ever think of that, you fucking prick?”
And God replied, “You stupid Human, do not question the Lord.
I fuck with you and then I carry you.
It’s just something that I enjoy doing.
If you don’t like it, you can just go to Hell.”
“Ok, God, I’m sorry.
I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings.
I just don’t understand why you make everybody suffer so much
Just so that you can carry them on the beach.
But that’s cool.
That’s your thing.
Please, come back God.
I need you.
I think I have cancer.”

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...
still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!
my first post is here -- check it out!
as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.
for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.
