I am a heretic and I talk to my cat, Gustavo — It’s on the internet, so it must be true

Usually, I do not respond to folks who engage name-calling. When folks attach words like “apostate,” “heresy”  or “theological celebrity” to me, especially when left by people named “guest” or “anonymous,” my guess is that they are NOT interested in having meaningful conversations. Also, I know that there is no way I can respond with, [Read More…]

If You Can Find Me, You Can Read Me

First, I want to thank folks for keeping up with my wandering self as I have  lived so many variations of my social media and blogging life. I am still amazed and humbled that folks read my drivel, so I hope to make the navigation as painless as possible. Now that I have been blogging [Read More…]

Bummed by the End of SFGate’s “City Brights” Blog

What seems like a million years ago – actually just three years – I was asked to be part of a new blogging group on SFGate, the online presence for the San Francisco Chronicle.

My 2011 Blogging Year in Review

Re-posted from www.reyes-chow.com. Like so many of us, whenever I get to the end of a calendar year, I am always surprised how quickly the year has gone by.

The Non-Story Story of My New Blogging Home

You have heard it a million times, the cliché used in every cheesy movie break-up, “It’s not you . . . it’s me” as if somehow that eases the pain for the one being left?  Well, this is not really a break-up, but in regards to my leaving, it’s true. After blogging for Patheos.com since [Read More…]
