The Morning Verses

Sorry it's been awhile. You know-- work, school....

I’ve been listening to The Who’s _Tommy_, (you know, the “deaf, dumb, and blind kid?”) while getting ready for work these days.

“Tommy doesn’t know what day it is
He doesn’t know who Jesus was or what praying is
How can he be saved
From the eternal grave?”

Whenever I hear this song, “Christmas,” I think of my old pal from high school Patrick Franklin. He was a big fan of the musical and would always remind me of the theological implications of the lyrics. In fact, I think if I dug up my old yearbooks I would find his words of wisdom amongst a bunch of “Have Great Summer”s from other more typical high schoolers: “Christmas = religious song.”

It’s an odd thing to start your day with memories of a high school past. Although they were mostly enjoyable times and I look back on those experiences fondly, I will take my present life over high school 10 times out of 10.
