    Your son, like Abraham was asked to sacrifice Isaac.

    No I would not.

    And speaking of dreams ... I've been having some pretty bizarre ones over the past week.

    I know a lot about Dreams - I studied Lucidity and stuff for a short while. <3 them.

    That was the very story that made me question religion as a six year old girl seated next to may mother in church.

    The story itself made me wonder: who really has enough faith in their God that they would carry that out, as Abraham did.

    Some of the recent ones have been disturbing and I hate dealing with the residual feelings. Thankfully most have been forgotten by mid-morning. I was talking earlier with a co-worker who recommended keeping a pen and pad of paper next to my bed so if I wake during the night, I can jot down what I was dreaming about. That's all fine and dandy, but I tend to fall right back to sleep. I can't imagine sitting up, turning on the light and writing.
