on the Headphones a new video clip over at.... http://www.youtube.com/russellhiggs
"WINDOWS 5" ...... a 39 second micro-concerto for Piano, Strings, Double Bass and a teensy weensy little Fly.
best viewed in Full Screen mode.
it's like Big Brother, but with a Fly.
meanwhile......... Ray prompted a line of thought earlier, that I want to re-articulate here.
in a comment (for yesterday's post) he responded to (a misinterpretation of) some of my words and he jokingly concluded that it showed a "Lapse" in my "self-professed atheism".
Which makes it important for me to UnderLine, that in order for me to "Lapse", it would require there to be some kind of pre-atheist period in my past life, for me to "Lapse" back into.
The word "Lapse", in the context of "religion", tends to reference people who were originally "brought up as" some religion or other, and who don't follow it anymore.
But there simply is no pre-atheist version of me anywhere in the past.
I have never belonged to any religion in my life.
I wasn't even baptised as a baby.
(I thank my Dad primarily for that gift. He too believed that religion was something I have the right to make my own mind up about during my life time.)
(and by the way, I'm not in anyway pissing on Ray here. I'm genuinely glad that he instigated/stimulated my need to articulate this particular detail. It's a perspective from my own narrative that I otherwise can take for granted.)
