Normal

Today was a day.  It was Thursday, to be exact…a thoroughly uneventful day. This is the third blog post that I’ve tried to write in order to share my day.  All the posts have  been so boring that I’ve about given up. But, since writing is often how I make sense of things, I’m persisting and…

Journey

The secret that we share I cannot tell in full. But this much I will tell. What’s lost is nothing to what’s found, and all the death that ever was, set next to life, would scarcely fill a cup.” ― Frederick Buechner, Godric In looking back over the past month’s postings, it seems that I…

Today.

I’ve been feeling rather subdued and introspective today.  Maybe I’m a bit depressed.  Sometimes it’s hard for me to tell the difference.  The depression sneaks up on me occasionally, but It doesn’t usually visit for long anymore.  In any case, my head is thinking lots of thoughts.  They are all floating and bumping around in there like…
