Last night I dreamed that I was back at church but the congregation was watching a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie instead of the boring conference stuff. I woke up thinking, "if that happened, maybe I would go back".
I don't think about religion very often anymore, and it's pretty nice to be free of the deeply buried anxiety that the subject brings. I'm currently reading The Yiddish Policemen's Union which makes me think of Judaism (great book too if you can wade through the yiddish and the initial few chapters), and we've been watching season 5 of X-Files which makes me think of Catholicism, but otherwise it isn't on my mind much. At least, not in the "I wonder if I'm doomed or not" kind of way.
I had a point, but I've forgotten it. I'm a bit sleep-deprived and my babies are requesting my attention. I guess I'm just really pleased with how my subconscious seems to be functioning right now. In the light of Apocalyptomania and weather extremes that I personally find unnerving, it's great to know that, deep down, my brain just really wants to see a remake of TMNT.
