Hi Dillon, I'm Karen.
Your post really struck me, as I'm in the similiar boat of trying to find my true 'place'. It's probably more the size of a cruise ship, hmm? I was raised Roman Catholic and although don't really agree with many aspects of the Catholic church, have remained fairly active until the last year or so. i've always felt a bit hypocritical though, being a member of a church that I didn't really feel was 'me'. My sister feels the same way (we are in our 30's) and we are "in the market". It would be tougher for her to convert to (???) because she has children. I believe that there is a higher power. But I don't like the way the Catholic church teaches or demonstrates existence of a higher power. And I'm extremely surly about the politics of all of it. But I'll keep mum on that for now. Anyway, "Hope For the Flowers" by Trina pauling (I think?) is one of my favorite inspirational books about life, death, choices...decisions and faith... actually it's about whatever you want it to be about. My mom used to read it to us when we were young. I love it because it can provide anyone inspiration for whatever point a person is in life- whether or not they believe in the practice of religion.

>>interesting beliefs who were kind and wonderful and yet you've felt uncomfortable and never able to fit in?

Couldn't have put it better. And actually, without your words, was never really able to put my finger on it better than that. I'm going to pop over to Amazon and get the book you quoted! I already sent the excerpt to several of my friends in similar situations...
Thank you! And I have much more to say but I'm receiving a very strong, progressively less friendly look from my husband from across the says, "Getttt offfff the commmmputerrr!"...
Take care
and welcome!
