Living in Sinincincinnati and Living Out Loud Cincinnati Blog are parallel universes. Each of us here “lives” in both. Both are filled with galaxies. Some of the galaxies nearest both us and our “parallel us” may be called Grief, Lust, Jealousy, Pain, Love, Anger, Jack Handey-style Deep Thinking,
and Fear. (As Dr. Carl Sagan was fond of saying, there are “billions and billions” of galaxies.)
What happens when galaxies collide? After a collision, does Anger hang together better than Love? Is Pain bigger and stronger than Jack Handey-style Deep Thinking? Does the surviving galaxy need a new name?
What is your personal galaxy? What galaxy is your guiding “star”? Is your little mental space-orb as helpless as the giant galaxies, which are slaves to the power of gravity? Are you just along for the ride?
Or maybe Living Out Loud is the small end of a universe, namely a black hole, speeding the collisions of giant masses of Sinincincinnati life experiences coming from all different directions? If so, what will be the result? Will any good come of it? Do you want good to come of it? Do you care?
