Well i have not posted any posts on this here blog for some time now, and mostly because my heart has been feeling very much at loose ends, and often down and heavy and extremely sad for so very many more than one reason.
And then…. just when maybe life seems to have thrown all the very worst that you would think it possibly can do at you. Low and behold, along comes something else that you never expected , that rocks you even more. And makes you realize just how extremely random and controlled by the many matters of chance this life here on earth really is .
Maybe i will bother trying to discuss some other matters ive been grappling with trying to deal with in my own life when i feel i have managed to have un-scrambled how f**ked up its honestly made me feel lately , enough to feel like maybe i can actually cope with attempting to even try to do so . At present my own family problems has left me feeling kind of numb , is the best word i feel i can find in short form to start trying to begin to explain . (As in the Pink Floyd track comfortably numb http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQWszrZHBPI
But first putting my own problems aside for the moment. Id first and foremost like to write a post of condolences for dear Dr Kens wife and family in hope that they receive all the love and care that is needed from folks close around them, as they deal with the very sudden loss of their loved one who died of a heart attack. As well as recognize the work Ken did and do my best to thank him some.
Kens and Cheryl`s friend , John reported the sad news here https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=21219785&postID=5029602047960980534 and its so very easy to see how much of an impact Ken had on so many people .
Back in June i already made mention Dr Kens blog and a post he wrote called … Will Atheism Eventually Replace Religion …. See here https://yobeauty.wordpress.com/2010/06/09/will-atheism-eventually-replace-religion/
And wrote about how i really liked his blog specially so much because of the great detail and how bothered to care to explain things so very well which was great for people like myself who aint so smart and learned. And even though i never often made any comments on Dr Kens blog .For me Dr Kens blog was a blog where i simply visited from time to time and just quietly read and listened to comments among all the good people who popped in there , while i just contemplated and learned things .
I wrote how i wouldn`t wish on anyone the bad luck of kids needing to be born to faithful parents who often had such abusive faith beliefs that they then also inherited , and so in effect became inforced into needing to deal with it all also .This being because our societies have allowed people the rights to freedom of faith and so freedom to also force the effects of faith on their children . And how i knew the end of faith wasnt likely to be very helpful to people like myself in this life, but how i knew life wasnt only all about me and my life anyway, and so i saw the possibility of the end of faith very likely being a real bonus for other children born and living in the future after me. And im sure Dr Kens work spent discussing these matters of faith on his blog was also aimed far more in mind toward the possibilities for the future also. …. Somebody needs to start somewhere in hope to help bring about so real change for the future … And Dr Ken Pulliam was one of those kind folk who thought about the future and others who will live later , rather than just being somebody only concerned about their own short life on this planet .
And so to this end i personally see this sudden loss of Dr Ken as not only being very sad news that a very good and kind man is sadly no longer with us and understand his wife Cheryl and family will surely be grieving , but i see a even greater loss to us all in that Dr Ken had much to offer us all ! on this earth, with the benefits of his insight and extremely good sense and reasoning , that im very sure was very helpful in bringing about much more hope for greater possibility for much more logic and common sense and kindness surrounding many of the matters of faith in the future.
So it is with very heavy heart in great sadness that i report Dr Kens sudden death , and i would just like to thank him for caring to bother to take the time that he did . As i think about and remember him and quietly hope that his wife and family do receive all the love and comfort from close friends in this time of grief i know they will all be dealing with .
A poem named.
While yet my sweet life burgeons with its spring;
Fair is my youth, and rich the echoing boughs
Where dhadikulas sing.
Tarry a while, O Death, I cannot die
With all my blossoming hopes unharvested,
My joys ungarnered, all my songs unsung,
And all my tears unshed.
Tarry a while, till I am satisfied
Of love and grief, of earth and altering sky;
Till all my human hungers are fulfilled,
O Death, I cannot die!
