35 days ago I sat on the edge of the Grand Canyon and wrote/prayed the following (unedited) words in a journal: As I sit here on the edge of the Grand Canyon overlooking a vast expanse of space and rock – I can’t imagine how this was created. How you…

Unless you’ve been living under “that” rock, you’ve undoubtedly heard “Good Feeling” by rapper Flo Rida – probably several times a day if you tune into any pop radio station. Although generic to the genre, most of Flo Rida’s words in that song aren’t inherently “bad”. In fact, in a…

*Note: The original idea was written in February 2010, and revised in November 2011. In the interest of full-disclosure, it’s been edited a bit to be relevant now (November) – some things were taken out. They just didn’t seem relevant anymore – feelings have changed, etc. etc. On the way…
