With this ring…

This weekend I had an adventure that I thought would be very solemn and meditative, but ended up being hysterically funny in the best possible way.  And I came out of it with a ring.  But perhaps I should back up a bit and tell you the story from the beginning… 

The final assignment …

Straight, lesbian, in between – it’s just plumbing

In honor of the United States Supreme Court considering same-sex marriage and all of the conversation that has generated this week, I’ve decided to bring back this piece that I posted two years ago.

math_atheist

As a kid, I was never really sure what “God” meant. It was something that everyone else seemed to understand that was completely beyond my grasp (little did I know that most people were playing a pretty good game of pretending they knew what it meant, too.)
