One of these days you guys are going to get tired of me writing travel posts about the UK. But even when that day does arrive, I won’t stop! I lived and studied in Oxford for a term when I was in college, and the rest is history. I visited again with my Mom in […]
Can I tell you a story? It involves a bit of jumping around in time and place, but I think it’s worth telling. Last month I read a book by Frederick Buechner called The Remarkable Ordinary. It wasn’t the first of his books I’ve read–a few years back I read his book Telling the Truth, and I […]
Normally this kind of thing would scare me, but as I’ve written over the last five days I’ve been reminded just how much I really love to write poetry. Even in five days, the ten minutes or so I’ve been able to scratch out of my schedule to write have become a sort of creative lifeline.
