Reminds me of “Suzanne” by Leonard Cohen. Excerpt:
And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said “All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them”
But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you’ll trust him
For he’s touched your perfect body with his mind.
I’m very grateful for the opportunity I had to share the message at First Presbyterian Church yesterday at the 8:45 and 10:10 alternative services. Thank you!
I used social media to frame part of the message, saying that Pinterest had bucked conventional wisdom because it’s a platform where people share inspiring and uplifting things. By offering a new kind of experience and an environment where generative things are shared and curated, Pinterest now drives more traffic to external sites than Twitter.
A bit of meta fun before I hit the hay:
Blessings, all, and peace.
I just started on Pinterest because I’m looking for an intuitive, visual way to tell the story of the arts infrastructure in Allentown. I pinned pics from a Google+ gallery, which turned out to be a less intuitive process than I supposed. To really make the Pinterest board look the way I want, I think I’m going to have to upload pictures individually, and that’s sort of not the point of Pinterest. The more I think about it, though, the more Google+’s default layout for this album feels exactly right. Check it out here.
