I wanted an Ask Science Mike logo t-shirt to wear to Dragon con in September, but there are none for sale. Took advantage of a day off to create some fan art from a thrift store t-shirt and some fabric paint. I'm pretty happy with it. @mike

New in my podcast feed this morning: Stephen Colbert on You Made It Weird. I wish my commute were a little longer!

The Red Couch Live! 

Some people will live their whole lives in the same community, same church - never leave home and family. Others are compelled to a hero's journey. It is hard. It is painful. It is worth it. If you find that you have to leave the life you thought you would have because you think, or feel, or ARE different, take courage. You will struggle. And you will be OK. You may have to journey far to find your calling and your tribe, but you will be so glad you did.

@vishnu @mike My rowdy friends & I had fun at T&W last night! Met a bunch of cool new people, had some good conversations. Some parts of the event were uncomfortable. I mean, yeah, some of the topics were tough. I squirmed a little with that. But OMG, the chairs in the pit in front of the stage were tiny metal torture stools that caused serious squirming 😂! I hope you had a great visit to the very weirdest part of ATL!

Just listened to the new Loving This podcast, and now I'm trying to figure out how to create a "Llama Soft" tee shirt. (Earth Sandwich tees were sold out at the End of the World in ATL.)😂 I also kept wanting @vishnu to realize that while a llama might want to be a goat, a lama would be at peace being a lama. And a caterpillar would ask, "WHO are YOU?" Listening took me back to the days when I could just walk over to a neighbor's house & spend an afternoon being silly, pursuing truth. <3 Carrie!

I have a friend who keeps saying they don't understand the Avengers phenom, so I started thinking about it. Humans love mythology. Always have. The Bible got turned into an instruction manual and history/science textbook in this country & lost the magic. So Americans craved BIG stories that tell deep human truths on a legendary scale. Some comic books were telling those myths. Some brilliant filmmakers decided to use modern CGI tech to spark the American mythical imagination. Magic!

Any Denver/Colorado front range liturgists want a gathering at my house?

Three more days. Three more days till my kids are out of school! Three more days till my next Audible credit and I can get Pete Holmes' Comedy Sex God in my ears! Three more days!!!

2/2 We can learn. We can change. We can grow. God never writes us off. God can use us. Yesterday's lectionary scripture tells the story of Peter telling God that he'd never touch anything unclean, or be around "those" people, & God showing him that there are no "those" people. We're all clean. Peter learned. He grew. He changed. I am praying that God will use me to spread the message that there is no "us" & "them". That's the message I shared all year with some beautiful 4 year olds. <3

Yesterday, I taught the last Sun School lesson for this class of kindergarten students. I love those kids & I've really enjoyed teaching this class. This year, I've had a chance to look at how I learned these familiar Bible stories in a conservative Evangelical upbringing & think about how I understand them differently now. Yesterday's lesson was about Saul "seeing the light" & becoming Paul. I told the class that sometimes we are going to be really wrong about something, but we can learn. 1/2

I want to write a free, copyleft book about how to thrive on low income in the USA, because all the books on personal finance give advice like "don't buy a latte every day," instead of "first, get your staples at the food bank, and *then* any other food via food stamps."

I've been writing an outline, and I need more sources. What books and links can you tell me about that are like more the food stamp example? (And please retoot!)

A podcast made me very happy this morning. Pete Holmes was a guest on the wonderful Unorthodox podcast, talking about Ram Dass and Michael Gungor @vishnu . So many podcast loves colliding in one space. Delicious!
