Learning

Wow. This blogging thing is really suffering these days. I haven’t forgotten about it, I just haven’t known what to write. That, and the last two weeks have been a whirlwind. I keep wanting to post pictures of fun things I am doing, but the reality is, my days are pretty boring In between meetings and Bar … Continue reading

City o’ City, Again

Whew – it has been a crazy couple of days. Last week, over the course of six days, I went to Denver four times. It’s only a 30 minute drive, but psychologically it feels like I am making a long-distance trip every time I go. 🙂 (Though it is more like an hour in traffic.) … Continue reading

Book Review: Infidel

I found this book at a Goodwill a couple weeks ago, and couldn’t resist. It has been a long time since I have seriously thought about the Middle East, and I was excited to read a book by a woman who was raised Muslim. I was struck by how works-based Islam is. Ayaan describes it … Continue reading

Ethical Conundrums

Last week, I stumbled across a video of a young man admitting that he drove drunk and killed a man. You may have seen it, but if not, it is worth four minutes of your time. What is most admirable about this video is that he made it before he was even charged. Meaning  the … Continue reading

It’s Official…

My days in Waco are numbered. As in, single-digit numbered. After weeks of getting nowhere, things fell into place pretty quickly. I went from freaking out about not being able to find a place to live, to freaking out about how soon I might be leaving. Funny how that happens, huh? You see, I have … Continue reading
