    hello Jonathan, I see you quoted something from one of my blogs _ recalltopoetry.blogspot.com which is cool, of course, and I had modified and poeticized.. re kierke.gaard.. so, then poeting? theologizing? not quite identical, but identity is not a higher power’s strong spot.

    and what’s this about the ‘end of th world’… if it is the end, it’s an ending that never happens, or starts again.. and again, it’s a positivity not a negativity.. I like to think of these things as becomings… postive flow, not the negative posture of the old idea of the eschaton.. take care… come visit us at takingthebrim.blogspot.com

    Clifford: The key is “near” the end of the world. Like Flannery O said, the life’s purpose of a Christian is to prepare for death. We wait and watch in joyful anticipation of the coming of Christ. But it’s not all rosy renewal and “positive flow” — shit literally happens and you have to literally suffer and die; and the whole world does.
