Dinner with Sam & Ella


Y'know, as someone who did not ever experiment with drugs, you'd think I would have no working knowledge of what hallucinations were. However, as I continue to recover from a whopping bout of salmonella these past two days, I think I can now relate to what people mean by "a bad trip"...


You see, I don't dream. Not at all. Or at least, it's extremely rare. As an adolescent, nightmares that would often turn into sci-fi short stories, but as an adult, I've only dreamt after taking Nyquil, which usually resulted in waking up with the feeling that I need demonic deliverance. (It works great as far as symptom relief, but whatever they put in to make you sleep... DANG)

But after these past couple of days, I can attest to what a "bad trip" on hallucinogens must be like.
For the record, although I live in Mexico, the food that did me in was store-bought trail mix, which I purchased and ate in San Diego...
Sam and Ella will forever be unwelcome guests in my house.

  2. Thanks, Sean! And I really liked your two most recent posts contrasting the view of leadership espoused by the NAR with that of Henri Nouwen. GREAT choice.

    I remember reading Nouwen a lot when I was in seminary. He had a lot of good things to say about leadership "among" instead of "over".
