life of sacrifice

"I have witnessed the bonds within this family.... These strange golden-eyed ones deny their very natures. But in return have they found something worth even more, perhaps, than mere gratification of desire? I've made a little study of them in my time here, and it seems to me that intrinsic to this intense family binding - that which makes them possible at all - is the peaceful character of this life of sacrifice. There is no aggression here.... There is no thought for domination."

The Dark Knight

My thoughts jotted quickly on a Post-It note after seeing The Dark Knight for the second time...
  • Are you willing to be at the end of the gun? Have all the people you stand against out to get you?
  • What do you do when you are falsely accused? Faced with injustice - do you continue to stand against it or give in?
  • Do you make the right choices even if they are hard and unpopular?
  • What does it mean to be the hero everyone deserves but not the one they need? To be more than a hero?

An odd thought

The purge

I woke up this morning to my radio station talk-show hosts talking about purging. Throwing out all superfluous possessions for a greater cause - other's needs and also our own sanity. Funny thing is, that's exactly what I did last week! Here are some before and after shots. Sigh - what a beautiful feeling!

Oh so tidy!

I got rid of so much STUFF! It was fantastic!
