Coffee Shop Trance Exploring Babel

Exploring Babel

The world of Matthew Grey was normal. Very "normal". It was that very fact that bothered him on nights like tonight. The rest of the world was going about it's day either vaguely aware that there might be more or totally oblivious to it. Not Matt. Matt was ending his day like the rest. In his case, that meant closing out cash drawers, balancing the vault and logging off all the computers. The cleaning crew would be coming in a few hours to tend to the finer details of mopping and polishing.

He turned around in the near darkness of the cafe and turned off the last of the lights. Pale blue street light bathed the nearly dark room. It was a vibrant shop during the day, but this is how he liked it best... Silence. Matt took one more look around the internet cafe' to make sure he hadn't forgotten anything, clicked on one side lamp, and pulled out the novel he was reading for this week, and sat down in the chair beside. The cool stiff leather was a great feeling, and his body needed the rest. The buss stop was just outside the door and he could see the bus coming from a block away or more each night through wrap around glass.

It would be an hour before the buss arrived, they only come every two hours at this time of night and he watched the last one pass about an hour ago. The pages of the brand new book were still stiff, he'd only opened them to read the intro material, forward, and such. He hadn't actually started this one yet, but it was one of his favorite authors, nothing like a Bill Meyers book to make the heart pound with excitement but still leave you pondering the meaning of your life by the end.

Come to think of it... he'd rather be pondering his characters life, his life didn't seem to have much meaning these days. The nagging sense that there not only must be more, but that he was missing it always hunted him, like a pack of wolves through a dark forest at night, always the sound was there but never to be seen. The novel still lay on his lap, but he couldn't bring himself to open it... he was just too tired, so he stared out the window into the dark streets beyond. Not much activity at 2 am. So he just sat there lost in thought.

A glint of something caught his attention and pulled him from his trance. Whatever it was lay on the cold  dark hardwood floor, in the walkway between the counter and computer desks, and it caught the street light just right to catch his attention. Staring for a moment at it, deciding if it was worth investigating the glint because a light, the light grew and now it had his attention. The world around him all of a sudden didn't seem right. From the light waves in the air, like those rising from a car in the heat of a summer day, rippled from the phone toward him.

Then a creak of light shot up from the floor to about 6 feet up in the air, then stopped, as the light coming through a doorway would. As in the the exciting part of a movie he leaned forward in his chair. The doorway opened wider and beyond he could see a village, with people laughing, talking, and going about their business.

Then the image widened to show more of the village, and he could hardly grasp what he was seeing, there were men on large reptiles hauling lumber, and long necked dinosaurs being used as cranes for construction. Up in the air men and women rode flying reptiles who themselves were carrying large rocks toward a tall structure. It was far more massive than any modern structure, dwarfing even the great pyramids of Egypt.

It was more of a city than a building. It was created of city blocks side by side working in and then more was built on top, each building upon another. Sharing the weight and supporting the overall structure...

Matt's attention was broken by the familiar sound of the buss honking a block away and he looked down the street. Gus always honked on approach, he new Matt often fell asleep waiting. When he looked back to his doorway it was gone. He was back in the shop, nothing unusual, accept on the floor, where the doorway had appeared he found an iPhone. It was glowing, missed call. The owner must have called and was missing his phone. That must of been the light he was half aware of in his sleep.

"Wow!" Matt said out loud to himself, "I must lay off the coffee, that was some dream..." He grabbed his bag and made his way out the door, locking up shop behind him and taking the phone with him. He'd call the number from the buss and let the owner know he had it. People tend to worry when their phone is missing.

Genesis 11

New International Version (NIV)

The Tower of Babel

11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.
They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”
But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”
So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

Embracing Grief - The process God gave you to heal

The following was a question from a Widow/Widower support group I belong to:

What is the most important thing you've learned about grief?
My Answer:

Grief is a process to be embraced and walked through. 
Your physical brain has developed protein structures (memories and muscle memories) that tell your body to react in a certain way.

These structures tell the leg to move when walking and they tell the body and mind to be a certain way at home with your spouse, certain expected norms.

Just as when a Vet loses a limb, a widow(er) loses something much more profound, their other half.

The new treatment for those who lose limbs is to activate the new nerve endings by rubbing them frequently with various materials (hard, soft, scratchy, smooth, hot, cold) so the brain can learn the new nerve endings. This helps alleviate "Phantom Limb Syndrome".

God gave us Widows(ers) the gift of Grief to help us recognize and process these protein structures in the brain as they relate to our …

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see
http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…
