Deep Thoughts

blast from the past, huh?
I think we're all hitting peak cabin fever these days.  I know I am.  I've been desperate to do things that aren't at home.

Here's a list of things I've contemplated doing of late:

  • Clean out my closets
  • clean out the fridge
  • learn a new language.
  • going back to the SCA.  I even started researching garb!
  • planned a trip to a Renaissance Faire
  • start training to run a marathon
  • Quickly switch to training for a 5K
  • contemplating going back to organized religion
That last one though...

I toy with this from time to time.  

I love the idea of a community of faith.  But between my own anxiety, and the bad taste the the media driven Christianity has left in my mouth keep me from it.
Now, I know that I'm not going to be hitting a mega church any time soon.  That would be bad for everyone involved.

I've tried Unitarian Universalism.  I rather liked that church... but that building is fit to bursting.

My BFF goes to a United Church of Christ church.  This denomination is a step down from UU.  But will I be comfortable with the level of Jesus. Do I go out of left field and try Judiasm?  But that's like learning a new language.  I tried paganism, but at times finding your way into a group that's free of crazies and that you click with... it's easier to become a Mason!

Most likely I'll ponder this for months.  Then the restrictions will lift.  And I'll end up spending my Sunday mornings running.  You know, to train for the matrathon.

Or maybe I'll give up these thoughts of God and bake some bread.
