New Year’s Eve

All you can do, all you can ever do, is keep going forward.

Lot’s Wife, 1989. David Wander.

As soon as they had been brought outside, he was told: “Flee for your life! Don’t look back or stop anywhere on the Plain. Get off to the hills at once, or you will be swept away.”

The Lord rained down sulphurous fire upon Sodom and Gomorrah (from the Lord out of heaven). He overthrew those cities and the whole Plain, together with the inhabitants of the cities and the produce of the soil.

But Lot’s wife looked back, and she was turned into a pillar of salt.

Genesis 19:17-23, 26.

It’s good to learn lessons from the past, it’s wise not to pretend it never happened, but I am concerned that too much auld lang syne will fuck your world apart, you know what I mean? So take it easy on yourself with the nostalgia today. I am going to try.

    Then Lot got drunk and knocked up his two daughters.

      So Sodom and Gomorrah are destroyed, and the one guy that gets out has his wife turned to salt and is drunkenly seduced by his offspring. What a scandalous fiasco. In the “win” column, I’m suddenly feeling much better about my own family’s vacations.

  2. John Salisbury Says:

    “seduced by his offspring”

    Yeah, that’s what happened.
