Talk:A change is coming
I wrote the first version of "A change is coming" back in 2004. From July of that year:
sometimes strong enough ideas can shape reality.
every now and then art and beauty and philosophy and theory matter.
and maybe this is a time when bliss does too
the stakes feel higher than ever
(maybe it can only happen in times when desperation opens us up).
there are so many variables and i really wish logic worked a little better
but at the same time ...
art and beauty unleash a lot of possibilities
and that is a magic place to be.
maybe adding in happiness or bliss or joy or whatever the right term is ...
maybe that's the secret ingredient that makes it all different.
even if not, it's hard to see how it can be a bad thing.
trust is scary.
love is powerful.
Over time, the words have changed slightly, and more importantly it's now densely linked. I first posted a version on the web in January 2005 when I created achangeiscoming.net, and put it on my MySpace during the Stop Real ID Now! (http://stoprealidnow.blogspot.com/) grassroots campaign in April 2006.
In early February 2007, we got an Obama mailer on choosing hope over fear (http://www.talesfromthe.net/jon/?p=85) (no, I don't think he plagiarized), so that's what I used as the title for my Obama '08 endorsement (http://www.talesfromthe.net/jon/?p=85).
