Chaos Generator

I made you a chaos generator! Well, another one, in addition to Share My Insanity.

Life’s daily chaos is not actually random, it is Divine Beneficence helping us in wild ways, which may be incomprehensible or even distressing, at first. To facilitate this Divine Madness, the Chaos Generator randomly generates quotes from various sources, including randomly generated moi.

A different quote appears near the bottom of this page, every 25 seconds. I trust synchronicity; the quote might be relevant to your day, providing a little inspiration, guidance, insight, connectivity, divination, or giggle. C’mon by as often as you want. Please, Share My Insanity.

And you can add more chaos! I want this free service to be really helpful, so:

1) If you have said something good—a one or two liner you’ve written that is uplifting or good advice or the like:
* Email it to me.
* Put “Chaos Generator” in the subject field.
* Right after your quote, put the exact name you want the quote attributed to.
* Email me at outlawbunny at outlawbunny.com

2) And/or to further tailor this illuminated lunacy to your needs, email me a quote from one of my books, blogs, etc—a quote that you’d find it helpful to be reminded of occasionally. Remind me which book or blog it is from.

3) Send as many quotes as you want, to make this thought-for-the-moment collection your special little retreat.

4) I am not accepting third party quotes because permission is a hassle. (I did add a few Thomas Merton quotes, but I spoke to the Thomas Merton foundation first.) I cannot guarantee I will use all submissions.

Thank you. Together, we can make something fun and useful for the community. Now scroll down for a quote generated by Divine Chaos!

I cook for fun. I cook because God’s in every morsel, filling me with his love and power. I cook because healthy food imparts its health, filling me with sparkly feelings. I cook because preparing whole organic food is a way to take responsibility for my well-being; a large portion of America’s health crisis could be averted by good nutrition.
