Do you think Jehovah has a nickname for Yeshua?

Today on the radio, they were talking about the shocking levels of teen suicides that are the direct result of bullying. It broke my heart, and it got me thinking about the ways that I was bullied, but more importantly, it got me thinking about how I would react if Harper was bullied. A lot of parents, I think, tend to have a "that's just what kids do" mentality. To them, I would like to say, "Wake the fuck up! That shit is serious." I think the only thing that would break my heart more than someone bullying my child, would be if my child were the one doing the bullying. I have no idea how I would react if I found out that Harper was bullying someone, but I'm sure that it's a version of her father that she would not like to see.

But let this stand as a formal warning: If anyone ever bullies my child, I am going to hurt you.

Anyway, looking forward to a relaxing evening with the family and a new episode of Lost. I'm enjoying this new season, but I'm not a guy that sits around and formulates theories about what's happening. I just trust that, by the end of it, I'll know what the hell is going on, more or less.

We had practice last night and spent almost all of our time working on "Preaching to the Choir Invisible, Part I." I'm really excited about what we've come up with. We had been starting the song with just me singing over a strummed electric guitar, but I really hated it. It reminded me of Travis. And I love Travis, but I hate when they do that, like in that song "Paperclips." Now it's driven by bass and Fender Rhodes, and I like it a lot. Anyway, who cares?

We went to the park yesterday, like almost every other day.


  1. We should have a park meet up some time soon. :) I spend most non-school days in a park anyway.

  2. What area of Austin do you guys live in?

  3. Cedar Park. Block House Creek specifically. :)
