The Egg: A Story I Read

The Egg
I recently read a story on Facebook called the Egg. In this tale, a guy died and came face to face with his maker. I won't go into great detail, but God tells him that everyone dies. So that's no big deal. Then God says that the entire world was created just for this guy. Everything. And then springs this on him: everyone on earth is some representation of this one guy. Everybody. They are all the same person. Him. And the earth is nothing more than an egg. Inside this egg, the embryo, the man, is growing. And will keep growing until he becomes like God.

So what do you think? Is everyone really just you? The guy who cuts you off in traffic is just you. The boss who pisses you off. That's you too. Another person somewhere else on earth--just you. They are all you growing in some way.

I'm not sure what think of this story. It is just a story. I think. But it does make you look at other people a differently. Like maybe you already know their story because it's your story too.

Update: I Finally Got It

Update: I literally wrote this post in the middle of the night. I had an epiphany, got up and wrote this post. So it was a little weird to the average reader. It was riddled with typos as well. But the fact remains I know what I want to do. If you stay posted and keep reading, it will soon become obvious to you.

I finally figured out what I want to do with myself. And I discovered it this week. All of the torment and turmoil. And it just came to me. I am already doing it right now. This is it. And it can only get better.

Please join me on this journey and follow me on my adventure.

I have a lot to figure out still. But I'm getting it done. I get so excited I can't sleep. Then the next day I'm so tired I can't get anything done. But I am getting things done, too. I've gotten a lot done. It's late now, and I should go to bed. But I just keep saying, "All this time it was right here."

July 4th on the 3rd: Rain and Fog and Downed Trees--BooHoo

Yesterday's July 4th on the 3rd was rained out except for the fireworks--and that was an abbreviated show. But it was really about family and friends, and that made it worth it.

On the way to the festivities we encountered a downed tree and were detoured by way of country road. And that wasn't bad. I actually enjoyed the ride through dirt roads and beautiful country landscapes .But I wasn't driving. So that makes a difference. I have a few fireworks-in-the-rain pictures. But not many.  And the photos are a little shaky. Getting photos in the rain is a little harder than I thought it would be.

My Little House

My little house that I love.

This is where I live. and I love it here. I love my house. I love the neighborhood. I love everything about it.

My brother and I painted this house ourselves--with very little help, just in the high spots.

My little patio.
We also repaired the patio by ourselves.

My little flower garden that I'm trying to get restarted.

My little tabletop garden.
