On a walk...

I went on a walk today. There's a gigantic oak tree near our house- it's bigger than anything in the surrounding area, ignoring the fuel dump down the street. But as you walk up the hill, it dominates your view, this twisted tree, with bark that's gone white... huge and old.

Today, as I walked towards it, I saw a vision of it burning, Old Testament style. I said, "Burning bush thing?"
"Got your attention didn't it?"
"Yeah, I'm surprised; until recently I wasn't noticing _anything_."
"That'd be because you were knuckling under to Kingston. By seeing me like this, you've just won back a little from Kingston."
"Really?"
"Yeah. C'mon man. You kicked Kingston's ass before and got out. You can do it again. Kick it and leave- don't let it drag out."

That made me feel much better.
