i want to everyone to know that i believe in love. i believe in you. i believe in him/her too. i think god's given us more than we realize sometimes; most of the time. not just thinks like saturdays and electric guitars and music, but... each other. we (the people) are the world's more untapped natural resource. how wild is that?
melanie is in texas helping hurricane (?) victims rebuild and rejuvinate things. she's been there since monday with a group of younger/older folks from delaware. from the sound of it, it seems that there are more hands than they can organize. not more help than they need, but more than they know what to do with. she's said the town is sort of "emotionally handicapped" or something like that. they are waiting for money (from the government), basically.
when i was a kid, my dad said, you are blessed to bless other people. that's always stuck with me. you are talented, healthy, fortunate (monotary, of sound mind, etc.) so that you can give to those who are obviously not. i hope that you don't read that with any condescending tones. i didn't mean it that way. this is already longer than i expected.
anyway, i don't think its a bad thing to believe in people. its like believing in art, like believing in music or anything creative. we are creative beings. we have been created by a creator. i believe that.
