So I have decided to start on my homework while the stuff I did get in class this weekend is still relatively fresh in my mind. in actuality I am terrified that if I sleep on it I will wake up tomorrow morning and remember nothing at all.
Just a quick prayer before I begin: (My deepest apologies to Thomas Merton)
My Lord, I have no idea what I am writing. I do not see the point ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am making a coherent point does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to do well in this course does in fact count for something. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing (or at least that I can fake it for another month). And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right path to my sought after degree, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of Plato's cave. I will not fear, for you are ever with me and you will never leave me to face being philosofried alone.
