A Bug's (After) Life

Something completely different this week for the Audio Blog. Annie and I are performing a short drama sketch at Church on Easter Sunday and you can here it in this Audio Blog. The sketch is called 'A Bug's (After) Life' and it lasts 3 minutes and 7 seconds. I hope our American friends don’t get too thrown by the Cockney accents!! We did the same sketch last year and the picture is from Easter 2006 performance. Enjoy.

What a delightful antidote to excessive ranting and standing on principle! - which can be purgative and productive at its best, but degenerative and destructive at its worst. I know - I have been a life-long ranter and have the blood pressure and hyperacidity to prove it.

The projection, out-of-self, of acting is a great balancer for the self-absorption of ranting. I do it myself on occasion. Annie knows what I am talking about and will surely provide the achievement of this balance for you for many years to come, Trevor!

Thanks Dick - glad you enjoyed it

It's good to know I’m not alone as a life long ranter.

A few years ago I would get even more wound up about things than nowadays but I still like to stand up for things I strongly believe.

Luckily my blood pressure has usually been ok and part of that is - I am sure - because I have always played many sports and kept myself physically fit.

But here is the most important factor …. since meeting Annie we often talk about is how the most important gift we have been given by God is our relationship … and EVERYTHING is less important than that precious gift.

I try to always stick to my principles although I am attracted to this brilliant Groucho Marx quote:

‘These are my principles and if you don’t like them … I have some more’

You are right – ‘getting out of yourself’ is a good way of providing balance. We do a lot of drama together in our work and of course for our Church.

Drama also makes me realise just how silly the subject of management is sometimes!
