50 – changes in altitude

These changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes, Nothing remains quite the same. Through all of the islands and all of the highlands, If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane - J. Buffett In the summer of 2012 my family and I met Ursula the bear in the Rocky Mountains and in the fall... Continue Reading →

imponderable funnel

Funnel 38 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: 2 “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? 3 Dress for action[a] like a man;     I will question you, and you make it known to me. 4 “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?     Tell me, if you have understanding. 5 Who determined its measurements—surely you...

8.5 – mendacium!

I have, throughout my college and adult life, taken a strong stand against the overuse of hugs and exclamation points. To me, a hug is not a greeting, but a very intimate statement of heartfelt love or compassion. They are given freely at points of crisis or celebration of the milestones of life, but they...

Maybe it was my imagination, but several things started coming together after I accepted Authority. Before I get to that, though, I'll explain that the final moments of my working all these things out was after London on a long walk on a railroad track, at night, in a light rain with a good friend...

9 – Christus

Things become more difficult, and at the same time simpler, when you accept an authority.  I had accepted Jehovah (from here I'll refer to Him as God) as the Creator, with no pre-established notions as to His involvement with men, method of creation, or much else. I began studying the writings about Christ. The gospels,... Continue Reading →

At a baptist college, there are strange requirements such as attending chapel, which is a weekly worship service during the day, as well as bible classes on the old and new testament. Chapel was generally pretty boring, but I found out that if you have a job that conflicts with chapel time, you don't have... Continue Reading →


Romans 13 seems clear to me.  These United States of America were founded in direct violation of the principles laid out by the Apostle Paul. 13 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what... Continue Reading →

Junior High was where my "melancholy," my introvertedness, and my faith based teaching collided.  Only in my adult years, post law school even, have I come to terms with what happened in junior high.  Had I written this in college, I would have started with Matthew 5:11 - Blessed are you when people insult you,...

I graduated from River Oaks High School in 1988.  I began my time at River Oaks in fifth grade.  Moving from Swartz public school to River Oaks private school, I was immediately behind my fellow students on several points,  most notably multiplication tables.  I still don't care for math, and as I type these posts,...

scribendo cogito

"Docendo disco, et scribendo cogito." I learn by teaching and think by writing.  And I enjoy a word or phrase from a dead language once in a while, like some enjoy the flavor of a cigar or the blossom of a whiskey (or a whisky). My favorite psychology professor has already made it quite clear... Continue Reading →
