Starting conversations again in months remaining

I’m going to start something. Something big… a rush of reflections if you will.

I came to a realization that life is getting serious. Well, I guess it has always felt pretty serious, but even more so these days. Here I am at the threshold of beginning a career in hospital chaplaincy. I am committing to this path. Our family is making our first real move together in September. Our time until then will be lived as fully as possibly. Working our asses off, yes (so we can have some savings for the summer and the move)… but we want to take as much time as we can to be intentional with our loved ones here in Bend and with ourselves. Serious, I know.

This, on top of the desire I have had for so long to revive my writing. It used to be so full and come so freely, but I think it had more to do with committing the time. After marriage and a baby, not so much desire for writing. Well, Kat has committed to an evening job a few nights a week so I am going to commit to writing.

And starting conversations.

So here is what I am going to do, and what I ask of you.

  • I am going to go back to posting regularly. Hopefully every day, not necessarily long, not necessarily short. Sometimes quotes, sometimes stories, sometimes short reflections. My hope is to engage. 
  • I am burned out with what blogging has become… links to as many things as possible, distractions, photos, etc. etc. I will keep my linking to a minimum and use photos when I am inspired.
  • Content? Most likely thoughts on fathering, nature, school bus driving, transition, the mystical experience, Celtic spirituality, spiritual direction, relationships, Christ… all the good stuff.
  • I would love your comments, your own reflections, thoughts, wonderings, and questions.

So if you made it this far, find the subscribe link on the home page and subscribe through your email. I would really love to engage with folks here.

Love always.

  1. Good stuff man, I miss the conversations too. Life has buried me with expectations, obligations and a whole lot of excuses, but I digress 😉
    I commit to following your writings and commenting as often as possible, so we can attain some sense of dialogue. I wish you the best, dear friend, as you make the transition this fall with your beautiful family.
    Keep your eyes on Christ and your feet planted firmly in reality.


  2. Drew,
    Thanks. I appreciate it. It’s so easy for me to fill the time I DO have with things that might not serve what I want in life or for myself. It seems like daily I am wrestling with giving myself grace to chill out or slaps on the wrist to get moving.

    Blessings, brother.
