The Ragamuffin Kid

occasional rumblings of the bedraggled, beat-up and burnt-out

My Photo

I am a traveller on my way Home, passing through this little land. It's a lovely place, though nothing compared to where I'm heading, I was told. I have journeyed through several valleys. Not the kindest place I must say. But hey, I've had some "mountain top" experiences too. They made me long for Home. I heard there are no valleys at Home. I have met some fellow travellers along the way. But mostly find myself among locals. If you're local, please bear with my quirkiness. I know my accent and ways are puzzling sometimes. If you're a fellow traveller, keep going. We should be reaching soon. Bon voyage!

Playing Jonah

I usually don't title my entries till I'm done writing. I find it easier that way. So I'm gonna do the same for this one, and the next and the next. Except that its gonna be a little tricky this time cos it's something I don't quite know how to tell. I foresee myself struggling as I work my way through a web of mixed emotions and issues I wish I could bury forever. Naive but true. I should have anticipated it. It's stupid of me to think God will sit by and watch his children run in circles all their lives. He might watch us for a while and see what excuse we can come up with. But He wants us to face up to our fears someday.

After years of running and tons of excuses, I have a sick feeling it's game over this time. Like Jonah, I'd much rather jump into the ocean and drown than have to deal with this. To me, it's as good as death.

There have been some unexpected happenings at home lately. It's gonna take up too much space if I were to deal with this in one entry. So I'll try to break it up, posting them over the next couple of weeks or as and when there is development. But it's something which is still unfolding. So I don't really know where it's gonna lead.
