And Jesus said to them, "Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his [accomplishments]." And he told them a parable, saying, "The [mind] of a rich [wo]man produced plentifully, and [s]he thought to [her]self, 'What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my [thoughts]?' And [s]he said, 'I will do this: I will tear down my [blog] and build [a more accomplished one], and there I will store all my [thoughts] and my [writings]. And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample [publications and a great reputation]; relax, eat, drink, be merry.' But God said to [her], 'Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?' So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God."

the adventures of tupac and miss g.

a student approached me after school yesterday.

"can i have the work for tomorrow? i'm going to be out."

i saw her in the hall today, at the drinking fountain.

"i thought you were going to be absent."

she nods.

"i was supposed to be in court today, but when i called yesterday, the lady on the phone told me they pushed back the hearing."


she looks like she wants to talk about it more. the halls are thinning.

"are you a witness in the case?"

she leans forward.

"no i'm--"

i know the answer before she says it; i read her eyes and i know.

"the victim."
