On March 20, 2008 at approximately 11:45 a.m. I married my best friend and love of my life. It’s been a difficult, seven year journey for us, mostly because we live on separate continents. But we are deeply in love and committed to each other, so the wait has definitely been worth it.
Now that the immigration process begins, so does the next wait.
Four hours ago, I left Mike at the airport. It was incredibly sad and painful for us both. I miss him so much…
An old country song keeps playing in my head. This is the chorus:
Shining in the sunlight
Headed somewhere in flight
They’re taking you away
And leaving me lonely
Slowly fading out of sight
Now I’ll wait for the silver wings to bring you back, Baby!
I love you with all that I am and all that I have!
So the work-at-home gig is going well. I haven’t actually worked in the nude yet, although I do spend most of the day in my pajamas. The most unexpected thing about this new arrangement is the fact that I feel slightly guilty about it. I know I’m doing the work correctly, but it just seems too easy; too relaxed. I keep thinking how odd it is that I’m actually being paid for it.
Because you have to be asleep to believe it. – George Carlin

It’s really very simple. Atheists share only one common trait: absence of belief in the existence of deities. That’s all.
Time and again, theists make assertions about atheism in an attempt to place all atheists in a box. I have encountered a variety of misconceptions people have about atheists, although one in particular seems to come up most often.
