Unbelieveably, I've been writing online for a little more than two years!
April 8, 2004:
I wish someone would write a comment. Anything! Hey -- I know you're out there.
April 8, 2005:
I wonder if my journal has run its course? I did walk 3 miles today. Those shadows in the photograph happened only because there was SUN.
It seems that two years ago I was mostly focused on walking, birds, and my daughter's preparations for her junior prom.
One year ago? Walking, birds, and my daughter's college decision.
Today: Walking, birds, and where my daughter is going to college NEXT year.
I'm not sensing major progress here.
In fact, I have huge things going on in the spiritual realm, but I am finding them hard to write about. Impossible, actually, except in the hard-cover handwritten journals that I am filling to overflowing. I guess I can leave a little trail, though:
In the past few weeks, I've heard both Kathleen Norris and Anne Lamott speak. In the car, I'm listening to the King's College Cambridge Choir, Celtic Woman, and Neil Young. I'm reading N.T. Wright -- how surprising is that? I'm wondering, in an intense kind of way: What if Jesus had never been here? How does it change things that he was?
And there are daffodils blooming out there in the cold sunshine.
