“But that was humanity. That was who we were. We went from bullying in the playground to rape and murder on the street. We splashed out on designer clothes and let children die of dirty water. We enslaved, we lynched, we bombed, we gassed. We slaughtered for land, then destroyed that same land with pollution. We told each other to lose weight and tan and shave and pluck or else they’d die alone. We beat our kids and threatened them with eternal fire every Sunday, in the same churches we pretended to drink God’s blood, because that’s what we were – blood-sucking parasites.

In creating human beings the universe made its greatest error – it became self-aware. And self-awareness comes all too often in tandem with self-destruction.

- Benedict Smith (via chunychuny)

I like to think I’m a little more optimistic about the human condition now. It comes and goes, I suppose.

When I got home from work tonight, Ashtyn greeted me at the door, dragged me to the couch, and handed me Curious George. We read the book 3 times while Lindy cooked dinner! Her intelligence completely blows me away.

Sometimes I deal with some heavy issues at work and I try not to bring it home with me. It certainly helps put a smile on my face when Ashtyn greets me at the door with a book and a smile :*)

Augustus Waters drove horrifically. Whether stopping or starting, everything happened with a tremendous JOLT. I flew against the seat belt of his Toyota SUV each time he braked, and my neck snapped backward each time he hit the gas. I might have been nervous — what with sitting in the car of a strange boy on the way to his house, keenly aware that my crap lungs complicate efforts to fend off unwanted advances — but his driving was so astonishingly poor that I could think of nothing else.
