don't fear death

(no subject)

i had to be at a conference this morning at 8:30. all the way out in kenner. i made it, arriving on the dot. it was cancelled. the ponchartrain center doesn't have water today. joy. i was happy on the way that i was driving against rush hour traffic and now i would have to turn around and get in the traffic. there were a few people milling about so i decided to go on in for a bit. this was a faith based conference....for faith based charitable organizations. i only went because i was slated to speak from 11-4. i wander in the conference room where they are praying. praying that the lord lets the conference continue on the new date and that it will be even better. people have their hands up in the air as if they are holding a great invisible globe over their heads and are swaying to some distant music they hear only in their faithful minds.
time to go.
it took me 4 times as long to get back as it did to get there.
