OK…so I’m attempting to stay rather NON-POLITICAL on this blog. Too much angst these days. Sick of it, frankly. But, THIS was too hilarious and had to pass it on. I wish I had the patience to find the info on how many watts of electricity it takes to heat/cool/light Gore’s gi-normous mansion…that was a HILARIOUS statistic that said something like – his home takes 90% more energy than the avg Joe. Hilarious. Esp in light of his "documentary" (yes, I meant to quote that).
Anyway, not meaning to insight anger or debate, just a reminder that people are not what they seem to be…and in politics, they certainly arent what they pretend to stand for (in reality).
I want to be…true…real, that is. That whole walk/talk thing, ya know? Me no politician, but I’m definitely far from perfect. Across the board, am I ‘living in the world but not OF it’? Do I look different than the John Edwards’s of this world? Or am I just the same? Is there a SOMEthing about my life that makes others ask "what is IT" or better yet, "I want that"? Hmmm. I want to be able to say YES. Or, better yet, I want those who watch me…my kids, those who come in contact w/me, and my family to say YES. Its gut-check time…I want to pass.
So, as I grimmace every time I see the headlines on Drudge, I ask that He directs me to be different. Ya know, that "city on a hill" kinda different. I hope you do, too.
