I’m not ready. College, People and Life.

I’ve been thinking that I should be writing. I should be talking to you, telling you what’s been happening…but the words wouldn’t come. My life hasn’t been that interesting lately. I guess. I’ve been working on getting Mr. Fox ready to go to college. That is the biggest thing in my life. Going on college [Read More…]

Proof of God; Defining Moments

It seems to me that the 2016 election will be one of those defining moments in history, much like Pearl Harbor, or 9/11 or Rabaa. There will be the time before…and the aftermath.

Where Do I Go From Here?

Sometimes, there is stuff you don’t want to talk about.  Its too private, or too painful, or too powerful.  Sometimes you don’t know what is happening or how to explain yourself.  I didn’t even realize it was happening until a few weeks ago, and since then I’ve been trying to figure out a way not [Read More…]

A Research Paper on Islam

One of the most wonderful things happened to me on Monday.  I received an email from a lovely young woman named Brittany, who is studying Religion in Queensland, Australia. The assignment we have been given is about religion in Australia, so we have to pick any religion and talk about how rituals are carried out [Read More…]

Alone in the Crowd

Yesterday I had a conversation with a friend that reminded me about something that happened in the early part of the summer.  We were talking about how when your child is involved in an activity that requires you to be a spectator with all the other parents, even though you see all these parents many [Read More…]
