This blog will be silent for a few days; I'm off to fill my sails with the winds of inspiration! Yes, it's time for that annual break from blogging, time to spend undistracted time with my friends and family, time for the summer pleasures that will be gone too soon. I'm off to eat watermelon, to grill good foods, to see the world through different eyes, to read a novel or maybe two!
A poet, a scholar, an administrator, a wanna-be mystic--always wrestling with the temptation to run away to join an intentional community--but would it be contemplative? social justice oriented? creative? in the mountains? in the inner city?--may as well stay planted and wrestle with these tensions and contradictions here, at the edge of America.
