    Most of the Bible I grew up with is incomprehensible to me. Really, I haven't the patience with such poorly edited material.
    But old teachings still rattle around in my noggin. Especially the stuff I couldn't understand.
    John 14:2 (King James) credits Jesus as saying: In my father's house there are many mansions.
    What does that even mean?
    Perhaps the mansions are a reference to other dimensions?
    Don't concern yourself that I will fall into a religious rant. I have no idea what happened 2000 years ago so this is the last reference I will make to the bible.
    It's just that line always...befuddled me.
    Any ideas?

    We assembled at a scaffold stage nearby. Early and misty, we clutched damp cardboard signs and banners, waiting for someone to tell us what the plans were.
    A man came out quietly and announced that the concert planned for the end of our march, was canceled because the performer had committed suicide the night before.
    Pete Seeger.

    After we all bowed our heads for a moment of silence, the man on the stage somberly gave us instructions for the march.
    It was one of those odd drizzly and sunshiney mornings, but I never saw a rainbow that day.
    We were all a little depressed as we walked, even though we tried to muster more passion.
    I still feel sad today at the memory of it.

    I was maybe in my twenties when someone mentioned to me that Pete Seeger was giving a concert that night.
    I kept asking over and over if they were sure until someone at the bar, (I was ALWAYS at the bar in my twenties) produced a set of tickets to show me.
    "Well, I'll be!" I said.
    I could have sworn he was dead!
