Where's My Head?

Mom always said I'd lose it...


Remembering Luanne - Redux

This is a repost of something I wrote just over five years ago. I've edited it ever so slightly from it's original form to account for my life changes and to update some wording. Additional commentary follows.

 


 

A couple months ago I woke up at 4:30 in the morning thinking about a girl - a girl I haven't thought about in many years. For some reason, my mind wouldn't let go of her memory and I couldn't get back to sleep no matter how hard I tried. Eventually I got out of bed, fired up the […]

Blog development update

Work on the blog continues.

Yes, I realize that you most likely don't give a rip.
No, that doesn't concern me.
Yes, you can sue me if you feel that strongly about it.
No, you won't get anything because I don't have any money.

So anyway.

On the front end, page titles are now getting generated correctly. Again, I'm probably the only one who really cares about that but it matters a lot for search engine recognition and analytics reports. The biggest addition that you will notice is that pagination is now working. Next on the agenda is to finally […]

Getting past the "They"

I've been thinking a lot recently about the concept of "they" and this habit we have of lumping people into groups. We're so good at doing that.

It's such […]

Goodnight Kiss

As I lay myself to sleep,
I turn to you
and whisper a kiss goodnight,

weedy garden of my thoughts,

the winds will
pluck and carry it
across the miles
and that you will
catch its fragrant perfume
and smile,
knowing that the world
is somehow a bit better
than it was

God is Doin' a Nu Thang

Every new beginning comes from
some other beginning's end.
Semisonic — "Closing time"

As several people who I care about are going through transitions of some sort right now, I'm reminded that God is a God of new beginnings. Throughout the Bible, we see examples of God bringing people into a fuller knowledge of Him — and using them in powerful new ways — by leading them into a totally different lives that they never imagined. In the cases of Abram, Jacob, Saul and Simon this was marked by a change of name as well to make it even more evident that […]
