I'm taking a blog sabbatical.

This is November, the month of NaNoWriMo. I'm not going to start a novel from scratch, but I do intend to spend some extra time on the one I've been working on since 2008. I'm also going to take some time to think, to spend time with my kids, to read, and consider what goals and intentions I have for my blog. I may update links, but I don't intend to write another entry until December, unless I get really struck by something that needs to be expressed.

Check back on Pearl Harbor Day (Dec. 7). Until then, be well. Be blessed. Be happy.

Aw, that stinks, but I understand. Taking a Sabbatical is definitely a show of wisdom on your part. I have been taking weekly sabbaticals (about 6 days a week I take a break from writing on my blog, ha). I had been waiting to hear from you about the election results.
Well, we will look for you then.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

I have come into this world to see this:
the sword drop from men's hands even at the height
of their arc of anger
because we have finally realized there is just one flesh to wound
and it is His - the Christ's, our
