is a trait of mine that I consider both a blessing and a curse.
myth vs. experience
line of propriety
Friends: What are YOUR thoughts on the subject of good/bad memory?
the persistence of memory (Salvador Dali…)
*Memory loss and Alzheimer’s are very interesting topics which I desire to explore further.
Can’t say exactly when…
Oh remember, remember
~read/watch/explore more here
Hopefully my memory will serve me well…
when it comes to this blog, anything does NOT go. The LDS writer Joanna Brooks has made me think about this and it’s implications regarding that golden line of propriety. She has a policy of “Anything Goes” when it comes to comments on her blog posts, but I have firmly chosen required approval for mine. But let’s get away from talking comments because I don’t really have a ton (yet) anyways 🙂 I will not feature any experience/person/picture/video on this blog. Again, I run the risk of coming across as self-righteous, but that’s alright because I like running AND I like risks. And I also know that while I’m not perfect, I do my very best to not judge others while still holding true to my own convictions. So while I respect Joanna as a human, Mormon, AND woman (just like me!), I differ from her in this regard, and in many others as well.
But there are a LOT of things I do wish to feature on my blog. And many, many good things already in the works. Stay tuned!
15% of me wants to see “The Book of Mormon” musical,
while 85% of me does NOT:
Pretty simple which one will win out.
People have strong feelings about “The Book of Mormon” musical. A ton has been written about it. Here are (in my intelligent opinion) 3 of the best insights:
Michael Otterson’s article.
Official LDS spokesperson. I simultaneously admire and envy this man (and his career) so much.
Plus I could listen to him read the phone-book.
The writers of the musical (South Park guys) said they researched the faith for 7 years. Brother Otterson talks about all the things the Mormons actually DID in Africa in those 7 years. Cool!
David Brook’s article.
He is a Jewish writer for the NY Times whom I admire very much. He talks about how only strict doctrinal religions (like Mormonism!) can survive. All other half-heartedly, generic attempts don’t really do any good.
Alaska Dispatch article
This piece points out that it shouldn’t be acceptable to ridicule Mormonism.
#we’re all a little curious
#the percentages might change a little bit if someone paid for my theater ticket, airfare, and lodging to NY. I could write a review of it and put it on this blog. just sayin’
