"And I said to the one who stood at the gate of the year, 'Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.' And he replied, 'Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than the known way.'" (Minnie Haskins)

Have you ever...?

Have you ever...? Think that's a fun question. First a story and then my 'have you ever' question.

A long time ago the city gave us the old debtors' prison to turn into transitional living apartments. A couple of years ago this guy moved into GlenCastle. I'll call him JP. JP was a tall imposing looking guy covered with tattoos. A starving artists. One of those artists who is bipolar and sometimes thinks folks are after him, etc. Well, apparently he got a little thing for me and even asked me out. He was a sweet quiet man, but he wasn't a believer and definitely had some issues. He's in jail for some theft issue that he says he didn't do. We really do think he just got connected with the wrong guys who did something and he got thrown in with them. But here's the kicker... the police just showed up. They want to see his old apartment, so they can do one of those black light tests for blood. Apparently he admitted to owning a blanket in which the body of a decapitated woman was found. We are unclear as to whether or not he admitted to the murder or not.

So... now one my "have you ever" questions is... "Have you ever been asked out by a man who later decapitated a woman?"
