a global enterprise

I’m with a global enterprise. We have branches in every country in the world. We have representatives in nearly every parliament and boardroom on earth.

We’re into motivation and behavior alteration. We run hospitals, feeding stations, crisis-pregnancy centers, universities, publishing houses, and nursing homes. We care for our clients from birth to death. We are into life insurance and fire insurance. We perform spiritual heart transplants.

Our original Organizer owns all the real estate on earth plus an assortment of galaxies and constellations. He knows everything and lives everywhere. Our product is free for the asking. (There’s not enough money to buy it.) Our CEO was born in a hick town, worked as a carpenter, didn’t own a home, was misunderstood by his family and hated by his enemies, walked on water, was condemned to death without a trial, and arose from the dead. I talk with him every day.

Ich gehöre einem globalen Unternehmen an. Wir haben Branchen in jedem Land der Welt. Unsere Repräsentanten befinden sich in fast jedem Parliament und Sitzungssaal auf dieser Erde.

Wir interessieren uns für Motivation und Verhaltensveränderung. Wir verwalten Krankenhäuser, "Feeding-Stations", Schwangerschaftszentren, Universitäten, Bücherverläge und Altersheime. Wir sorgen uns um unsere Klienten von Geburt an bis zu ihrem Tode. Wir bieten Lebensversicherung und Feuerversicherung an. Wir führen geistliche Herztransplantate durch.

Unser Urheber besitzt alle Immobilien auf der Erde und ein Sortiment an Galaxien und Konstellationen. Er weiß alles und wohnt überall. Unser Produkt ist kostenlos, man muß nur nachfragen. (Es gibt nicht genug Geld, um es zu kaufen.) Unser Geschäftsführer wurde in einem kleinen Kaff geboren, arbeitete als Tischler, hatte keinen Wohnsitz, wurde von seiner Familie mißverstanden und von seinen Feinden gehaßt, ist auf Wasser gelaufen, wurde ohne Gerichtsprozeß zum Tode verurteilt und ist vom Tode auferstanden. Ich rede jeden Tag mit ihm.

art, and a few thoughts

Wow. Haven't been here in a long time.

Some of you, my Faithful (?) Readers, already know why I haven't felt like blogging much lately. Ed and I have been dealing with some pretty serious trials over the last seven weeks. For me, it has felt like being in a dark, cramped hole, into which light penetrates only on the rarest of occasions. And I'm afraid of coming out. Every day, God infuses me with a bit more strength...but still, healing is a long and slow process.

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about.... You're welcome to ask, and I might respond to you privately. Or I might not. It depends on whether or not I feel comfortable sharing personal things with you.

In the meantime, I got new art posted on my Elfwood gallery this week! Here are the links to the new pictures:

'Aberrant Bird, Buoyant Bird, and Crestfallen Bird'
'According To The Dove On Far-Off Terebinths" and a details pic.
'Black Leaf Castle (Or: Someone Left The Lights On)'
'First Faery Tower Infesting My Desk'
'Maske der Kälte' and a details pic.
'Second Faery Tower Infesting My Desk'

Please leave some comments on my pics so they don't get lonely! (No, I'm not above begging.) ;o)
