These days, especially since obama, it's like the lights came back on and things I never really understood or took that seriously have my full attention.
I am a prodigal son but better at it, with more of the son who stayed home's ego and attitude, so perhaps my homesickness has taken longer to get serious, to where I can't talk myself out of it.
What I found is that there is a lot along that long walk home that tries to convince a wayward lost boy like me that things aren't so bad, to stop walking back home, don't deserve it anyway and besides, the view is fine from here.
Being so easily distracted, I've come to appreciate obama and all he's done to make it and keep it real and show me in a way I could understand that the party is over and put me back on the road home.
It is a good thing to be awakened to things we need to see.
God Bless You and keep walking towards Home!
