Eagle’s Flight – the dark corner of betrayal – 3/25/17

I have been praying more deeply in my “Room with 12 doors” and have found it to be a useful compass to help me navigate some of my own dark corners. In my meditations, I lifted the hiding blanket over … Continue reading

eagle’s flight – where next? – 9/1/14

I’m not retired yet. I’m not done working for at least part of a living. But I am done with learning the next new open source programming language. I am done with competing with 20 & 30 somethings over things they learned in school, that I have picked up along the way. I love writing poems, music, meditations, etc … but doubt that writing can support me at the level I desire.

eagle’s flight – breathe the way through – 6/28/14

My job situation has changed and I’m looking for a new way forward. I’m looking for a new job that is more in keeping with my current talents, desires and callings. And I’m rather done with trying to keep up with 20- or 30-somethings learning new computer languages constantly and eager to jump on the next new wonderful idea to be built out of the internet clouds.

So I find my self at the end of one road, and I’m beginning to see bits and pieces of what a possible new road looks like. It seems like there are new things all around me, in front and behind. And I’m only beginning to make some kind of sense out of them. (and I suppose this comes from following a God who is “new every morning”, perhaps I’ll need to get used to it). Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – adaptability – 1/29/14

how do we learn to adapt to a world changing so quickly?
how do we learn to adapt to a world in which our community becomes “those we run into”? online, at work, at the gym, on the train, ….

Why even try, when things, people, places, relationships change so fast?
When the “status quo”, becomes “the old ways” so very quickly.

And what do faith and love have to do with it,
when what I really want is to just be left ….
alone? Continue reading
