For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  – Psalm 139:13 (NIV)


I damaged my DNA at birth. Apparently the umbilical cord strangled the “common sense” strand rendering me an idiot. This explains why I run aground in my sailboat, fail to read instruction manuals, can’t focus on details, speak up when I should shut up, stand when I should sit, and hold to the foolish notion that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof—even if that means allowing government employees to bring God into their workplace, courtroom, or oval office. I’m what you call an Eddie.
Eddies form when a current develops instability. (Plenty of volatility in our culture.) The circulation within an eddy usually has different temperature and characteristics to the water outside of the eddy and flows in the opposite direction.
For years I fought my counter-current nature. Odd is fine if you need a funny character in a movie or novel, but not when you want others to take you serious. And yet, no matter how hard I tried to “go with the flow,” I could not. I got bounced from class for talking back to the teacher, reprimanded by my boss for questioning company policy, and fired (sort of) as a Sunday school teacher for presenting the consequences of sin in stark terms. (Hell! Oops. Can’t say that in church.)
