I have sat down to write this week’s post many times but there are no words. Let me correct that; there are many words but nothing to say. That isn’t quite true; I have a lot to say but nothing that makes sense. Okay, I hope this will be the last correction; many things make sense but nothing seems to be important enough or rather impactful enough to spend time and website space on.

We all know someone like this. Maybe it’s you that is like this. The peas are in a neat pile. The corn is in its own pile. The mashed potatoes and meat have their place too.

It could just be the introduction of Ketamine into my system twice in 9 days. It could be the pain killers required after the procedure. It could be that I actually have had some sort of intellectual theological breakthrough. I am not really sure.(more…)
The link may be weak and the research suspect. The information gathered may be anecdotal and the double-blind study more like a both eyes require reading glasses for the small print.
