Tina and I belong to a gym. I consider gym membership to be an investment in our future. It’s not only for me, but for Tina. The longer I can stay alive through a healthy lifestyle, the longer we can enjoy each others company.
This is one of the things we can control, for the most part, and I put a lot of stock into it.
I feel like every time I go to the gym, I leave with a locker room story or two that I must tell Tina. They aren’t always interesting. Often they are humdrum. But I’m inspired to tell her and she’s good enough to listen. They are often stories that force me to rethink where I’m from and where I’m going.
I need to put some of this in context.
For anyone new to this blog, I come from a place I call The Yeshua Fog™. The Yeshua Fog represents places in America that are so densely saturated with religious activity, vocabulary and ideas that it’s almost impossible not to be religious or act religious to identify better with the local tapestry of life. Without the lifting of the fog, most people that live there can’t see past this lifestyle, and therefore perpetuate backwards ideas, like homosexuality is wrong, evolution is evil or there’s a war on Christmas.
