Tom Waits is my spirit animal

 

White smoke on a gray background

Well, the earth died screaming

While I lay dreaming

Well, the earth died screaming

While I lay dreaming

Dreaming of you

—Earth Died Screaming by Tom Waits

Wrong. Lately I have been waking up with the disturbing feeling that I have been living my whole life wrong. My focus has been on this life, on the temporary and that’s the problem, The Bible teaches us that this life is but a vapor and to put our focus outside of ourselves– on The Eternal. As the world dies screaming, I can’t keep living in my isolated bubble. I feel as though thankfully, gratefully, painfully the veil has been ripped from my eyes and now finally I see—God.
