Life … true/false, or multiple choice? I was listening to 89.7 POWER FM (http://www.897powerfm.com/, a Dallas station, the other day. Might as well give it a plug, what the heck?? While we’re at it, check out http://www.myspace.com/foreveryday. This is Alex’s rock-n-roll band (my son’s band, in case you aren’t a regular reader). The band is also listed on my blogroll for your listening pleasure. The 89.7 Power FM station, a Christian rock station, occasionally plays one of the songs, “Moments,” that my son’s band has recorded. You have no idea the effort it takes to get a song on the radio!
For Every Day is not a Christian rock band, they don’t proselytize, but instead are a rock band with a positive message, and so they play well on the Christian stations. So I listen sometimes, in hopes of hearing their song, because there’s nothing quite like hearing your child’s song on the radio. To be fair, Alex didn’t write the song. Most of the songs are written by the band’s lead singer, Jacob. The band is tight, and Alex is lead guitar. He’s a whiz on the strings, actually, if I must say.
I know most all of the band’s songs by heart, I play their CD in my car, and go to most of their shows. On Power FM, I haven’t heard them so much, though. Which brings me back around to the life true/false question. What I do hear on Power FM is occasional banter about righteous living. A few days ago, the DJ made an unequivocal statement that life is a true/false test, not multiple choice. Hmmm ….
Hate to disagree, but I believe that life is not a true/false test, but more of a multiple choice conundrum. However we choose to live, we have the power to decide. We can make it easy, or make it hard, but we have the power. Right answers are not always yes or no. Sometimes, the answer is, maybe this if that is the case, or that if this is the case. Sometimes you are presented with a smorgasbord of possible answers to your toughest questions. Granted, when it comes to some issues, right is right, and wrong is wrong, but sometimes situations exist that make even the best answers seem ambiguous. For me, life is a colorful journey, not a series of problems with only black or white answers, as Power FM suggested.
For the record, I agree with the artist’s assertion concerning the toilet rolls … The position of the toilet paper roll on the left is right … the picture on the right is COMPLETELY wrong. Period. The End.
Toilet rolls aside, I’m interested to know your thoughts on the true/false, multiple choice question posed by the radio station. Thoughts anyone? No? Ok, then. Your thoughts on the correct position of the toilet roll???
