Bridge has Sailed



Bridge has Sailed: A mash-up of the clich├ęs “water under the bridge” and “that ship has sailed.”  Such as, that “bridge has sailed,” when one with an arguably significant internet footprint is considering removing his internet footprint altogether.  Or, whenever someone considers alleviating a problem which likely cannot be undone after the fact.

To be forgiven, forgive others




Of late I have been pondering how one might seek forgiveness for one’s trespasses against others when the other is no longer available to forgive the one seeking to be forgiven, for whatever the reason.  Coming from an unexpected source, my question may have been answered.  Maybe by forgiving the trespasses of others against us, we might be given forgiven for our own unrepented acts against others.  Such would be in keeping with the “do unto others” maxim as well. [1]  All this is to say: To be forgiven for one’s own sins, maybe one should forgive the sins of others.

“Ovation” or “Novation”?




Did he say, “an  ovation,” or “a  novation”?  Because, generally and typically at least, the two are entirely different things.
