:Religion…is a smile on a dog


Yesterday, listening to my iPod, a stanza from a song I’ve heard hundreds of time jumped out. I quickly looked at the title of the song. What I Am, sung by Edie Brickell. The next thing I thought was what a great name for a Thateus puppy! That’s What I Said. What I Am. The theme started from Sadie’s name – All Said and Done. What I Am is now in the dog name list. Back to the song… I love this…

I’m not aware of too many things
I know what I know, if you know what I mean

And, as a kid having always read the back of cereal boxes while eating breakfast, I love this…

Philosophy is the talk on a cereal box
For some reason the line immediately after had escaped my consciousness…

Religion is the smile on a dog

Now the song may or may not get too deep. Edie does say…

Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

The only other reference to philosophy or religion is…

Philosophy is a walk on the slippery rocks
Religion is a light in the fog

So, that’s my religion and philosophy for the day. On a cereal box. And a smile on a dog.
