After Reading the Rage-Mail, Take a “Long Pause”

Darren Hughes’ Long Pauses is one of my almost-daily stops.

Imagine my surprise when I went to the site today expecting another insightful film commentary, or a profound political analysis, or a revealing anecdote, and instead I found him editorializing about my column about profanity.

Mr. Hughes, I’m flattered and humbled and a bit giddy with gratitude.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    Originally I mentioned Darren’s “ponderous political commentary” when I meant “profound”, so I’ve corrected that. Wouldn’t want to scare anybody away from Darren’s blog.
