I don't understand why people have to cling so tightly to their narrow definitions of what is societally acceptable, nor why they have to throw stones at people who violate those definitions.
And on another note if you are so afraid of your shadow then maybe there's a reason. Maybe that shadow should pop to life, deck you one and leave you lying in the gutter to think about how none of this would have happened if you hadn't built your shadow up so strongly.
The length of one's shadow depends on one's position from the light. It's your own damn fault it's so big.
Sometimes people have problems and sometimes people ask for help. And sometimes that help arrives in the form of a funny little mexican on a ferry boat. I know God's treated me with a wide variety of life lessons - sometimes they're really obvious and sometimes I don't notice them until they've already passed - but they are rarely what you expect.
Please step aboard the ferry. I don't know where it's going but the mexican doesn't seem to be casting much of a shadow.
