Demons

I am not sure how most people are going to react to this entry but I believe in Demons. I have battled many of them a long time and have to be honest, it is harder to fight some of them than others. My biggest demons are fear, anger and guilt. This entry is not about my demons but someone else`s.

A good friend of mine just had the biggest fight of his life with a series of demons. The ones I mentioned above he had to fight all at once. I am really proud of him for doing that, because it takes a real man to face all of the demons at once and come clean. At times the best weapon against all of these demons is trust… trusting those around you can have a liberating effect.

If you feel like you are fighting a demon right now, you should really look around for those that love you and trust them to be that safety net you will need once those demons try to push you out the window. Even the highest falls in our life can be lessened if the safety net of those that care for us is waiting there for us to break the fall.

Running around

This week has been interesting. Lots of putting things back together, lots of running around. I did get to spend some time with some friends and share some Colombian food with them. That was an excellent time.

Since the Friday meme is in limbo and I don’t have time for a real post I figured I would do one of these weird what I am up to posts.

I actually watched Fast and the Furious Tokio Drift and was entertained. I thought it would suck, but it was great for an action movie. Drifting looks life fun, but all the car crunchin was sad. Some of the cars were surprisingly slick, I laugh at the tunner scene sometimes for overdoing some of the stickers, but a couple of the cars had some excellent looks to them.

Tonight I have a special invite to a club from a local DJ. It should be cool, off to dance some Salsa and Merengue. What are your plans for the weekend?

Chris had a baby boy!

I working from Chicago this week, and my friend Chris calls me today to tell me some awesome news, he had a baby boy last night :) Well, not him, his wife actually had the baby.

I am so happy for him and his wife, we all went to the same college, so I have known them for quite some time.

Congrats Chris and KT!

Messed up dream

This morning I had a very strange dream. Even though I am no stranger to really vivid dreams, this one was just a little more hyper realistic than I want them to be.

I was in a house I did not know, but it seemed to be mine. As I tried to go into the backyard through a sliding glass door about 10 puppies of all different breeds greet me with hunger on their little faces. I seemed to have either seen the dogs in a previous dream because my familiarity with them was strange. Somehow I feel like they represented something in my life. I ended up feeling feeding them… but then the dream gets really weird.

I looked to my right and there is a corrall type of enclosement. If I had to describe it further I would say it was a pigsty, but instead of pigs, there was adult dogs in there. I started to head towards them when a big crow flew away from what looked like the half eaten corpse of a dead dog. Surprisingly the corpse dog, that was truly repulsive get up as I set a bowl of food in the middle of their enclosement. The dog ate along with what looked like malnurished dogs.

I don’t think a dream interpretation book can help me with this one, but what I am thinking is that the dogs all represented ideas… some new and some old… for some reason some of my older ideas are still there, waiting to be feed, almost dead but not quite yet there.
