I should be grateful that life is busy, and in good ways. But I'm embarrassed by how intimidated I become by this blog thing. Don't even mention my Web site, which is badly in need of upgrading. However, I am persistent, if slow. And as soon as I determine what I want to blog about that would amount to more than simply my opinions, I'll get this going in a more substantial way. To the handful of you who have checked in, please check back in a few weeks if you think of it.
What is on my mind these days? Mysticism. The spiritually disciplined, deepened life. And all the options there are for me to discover each of these aspects of life more fully.
Also, the writing life and what it has become for me. I must choose among many good ideas for books or articles or personal projects. I must understand where my calling is leading me. I must develop a sense of self and giftedness and neediness and service to others. All of this represents years, decades, and more energy than I want to think about. But life should challenge us, make us cringe a bit but also make us desire more and more . . .
