The Story We Tell Ourselves
               A word
only has meaning if we give it meaning. This whole life is a lie, we tell
ourselves every day we understand, but we don’t. We don’t know what makes our
radios work, our computers run, and our cars to turn on. We don’t know why some

How I Lost My Religion Through Prayer
I was initially going to name this post "how I lost my faith through prayer", but then I realized I really don't know what faith I have or don't have. What I do know is that I don't have a religion, and that I feel very comfortable with that. I've written m...
