Grapple with Steve Orr's memoirs from youthful years in Kentucky. Savor a warm, peaceful memory from a family room that was often "a bit cold" with A Sunday Afternoon in Winter. Feel the burning shame of the Incident at 10th and Clark. Learn what happened after all the waiting and wondering one Unfinished Christmas.
Dig in to scripture with meditations on the Lectionary readings. Think about Advent, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost and the Season After Pentecost in entirely new ways.
Ponder popular misconceptions about important historical events in No Waco, No Roswell, No Bunker Hill. Become more careful about correcting "mistakes" that may not be mistakes in Wrong War. Consider the origins of knowledge and words in Made-Up Words.
I enjoy long talks over coffee, taking drives with my wife, spending time with my daughter, son-in-law & grand-son, finding just the right word, encountering the provocative idea, reviewing books, reading, writing, teaching, mentoring, sitting outside on a pleasant morning, cruising on the Holland America Line, solving puzzles, and Down East Maine.
