The Holiday With No Name
A Church of No Preference family enjoying some time during "The Mystical Furlough."
This is a time of waste. Call it what you may, sabbatical, recess, vacation, suspension, hiatus, it really doesn't matter, but it has been time for a space-out. At the Church of No Preference, we make time to not do things as normal and tht means ceasing operatons.
You may have noticed the lack of blogging, or bloglessness due to the activity outage, this is normal during the time-out. We do this every year for three to four weeks in the late spring and it provides time to rejuvenate our souls. During this period we highly discourage attendance to church in order to even give the building time to relax.
We have never settled on a formal name for this time of the year, but everyone knows and anticipates this interlude. Mulitudes of descriptions are used. Some are very basic, like "Sabbatical," or "Hiatus," and others are a bit more colorful, such as "Springathon," The Holiday With No Name," and "The Big Breathing Break." This bog entry is just a notice that a lack of blogging has occurred.
During "The Long Dream" an interesting date happened, 06/06/2006 or 666. A small portion of the followers of the Church of No Preference were a bit worried that the world might end due to the 666 date. With a sigh of relief, the world survived the ending of the world and life goes on. That was fortunate that the ending of the world didn't happen during our "Mystical Furlough," because that would have been distracting from the enjoyment of our "Leaf of Absence."
Also a note that I had a small heart attack early during "The Great Goof-Off," and have been taking it easy (what else would I do during "Rebound Recess?") while awaiting the second procedure for stent-izing. I'm doing good. Times like these get one questioning what is beyond death should the slight chance that the procedure goes kerflooey. One wonders if there really is a God or Gods. Or does God pay attention to me as they go messing around inside my heart? Does God intervene in our lives or just let things happen? Or is God just a myth?
I must also mention that the softball league has been suspended during this time and will explain more about this at a later date. So, anyway, party on Church of No Preferentists, "The Nothing To Do Festival" is still in session.
