I can’t believe I am doing this ….
As I mentioned in the intro to the website, I am at a time of change in my life. I find myself in the first few months of retirement. For the record, I am thrilled – BUT, I am not ready to retire, therefore 2017 is sabbatical year!
So I begin this blog. I attempted something similar to this several years ago, however life and career had far too many distractions that prevented me from doing so effectively.
As we get going on this I will share different thoughts and reflections. It will be about life and faith – in my mind they are one in the same. A few different people have asked and some cases told me that I should be writing to share my memoirs, homilies, provide views and stories as I see life. What is so funny and intimidating about this is that I do not like to write – why, because I don’t think I do it well. This is because for much of my life I have been told or criticized about my writing ability. So, I will face this challenge head on.
This past winter I attended a couple information sessions at the library about writing. These were information sessions rather than on the technical aspects of writing. It became clear to me that there is not a one or only way to write. Writing, I have discovered, is as different as the person.
So we begin, really not sure how often I will post etc. My plan is to post at least weekly. Please also check out the other sections of the website for updates – Links, Homilies (starting in October), About Me, and The Camino. Please note and check the Camino section during August / September as I attempt to walk the Camino – Frances.
Finally, please note the Prayer Request section of the site. I am a strong believer in the power of prayer. I welcome you to join with me in prayer as we all continue our pilgrimage of life.
