|I wanted to sleep last night. . . |
and this wasn't going to help!
First, yesterday I had experienced a refreshing Sabbath. It had been a good day of worship, coming apart from the normal activities of the week, and experiencing some rest. I didn't want to ruin that.
Second, I was alone. My wife is gone for a few days tending to a family member. I benefit from being able to process what I watch with her. Watching the VMA's typically makes my mind spin, and last night I didn't want to have to do that alone.
And finally, I always tell people to exercise great caution in knowing where their "line" is. In other words, don't go where you can't go at a time when you know you can't go there. Last night, I couldn't go there. . . basically because I wanted to be able to sleep.
So this morning, rather than blogging on what I saw when I watched last night's VMAs, I thought it would be more helpful to blog about why I didn't watch last night's VMAs. I want to encourage you all to be sensitive to the rhythm and flow of your own life, then tune in or tune out culture accordingly.
Today, I'm ready to watch. . . and tomorrow I'll blog on what I see.
