Are we God’s puppets? A guest post at Kevy’s blog

A month ago, Kevy Michaels decided to follow Bobbing Around. As I always do, I visited his and left a friendly note. His response was so wonderful that I posted it immediately.

Part of his message was an invitation for me to send him a guest post. After looking around his site, I sent him a 2800 word essay, which is an extract from an as yet incomplete book hiding within my computer. The theme of this book is nothing ambitious: the nature of the universe.

Kevy has just notified me that he has posted my essay. I went to have a look, to find that he has done a great deal more. Despite working for a living, and engaging in many and various voluntary activities that make life better for many other people, Kevy has spent immense time, thought and emotional energy in writing a thought-provoking essay around my essay.

If deep issues fascinate you, please invest the time to read the plaiting of Kevy’s thoughts and mine. I could not find a way to comment there, but hey, you can comment right here!

There is a prize. Every commenter will be randomly drawn to receive it: a small but significant step toward enlightenment.

    Do you want me to find you a Father’s Day pome (June in USA) from Magdalen’s and my “Imagining the Future” from the Celebration Series. Men tend to get neglected when it comes to poetry, you know!

    Hugs, Carolyn

      Thank you for thinking of me, Carolyn. I do my best to ignore all “special days,” even if I approve of the message, e.g., days devoted to particular species of animals. Mother’s day, Father’s day, Christmas etc. are particularly objectionable, being huge marketing exercises.

        Oh, gosh. We have found something to disagree on. Marketing. We have all been marketing since we learned that certain garbs are not suitable for every event, that we are likely to be invited to more parties if we smell good and that most of us who approve of Democrat government find it comes with a certain amount of capitalism which thrives on marketing. Lol.
