The Road Ahead – Introduction – 7/14/15

I’m well along in the process of writing a book. I’ll include a few excerpts from it in my email/blog. Here’s the Introduction, and an annotated table of contents.

I speak about God here. If that offends you, use “Love” instead. Its one of God’s primary names. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – Speak to Me – no forgetting – 10/16/14

Several of the paintings and sculptures struck me in different ways as I stood before them and let them speak to me. I wrote down what I felt as I wandered through one of the paintings. I’d love to go back and see what other conversations await me there. 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. This doubt and changes in my life’s rhythm somehow make it harder to choose what I love doing, when I “should be making money”. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – new visibility – 6/5/14

It’s been 12 years since I published “The Walk of the Eagle”, and due to my most recent job changes I’ve had cause to go back through those promises to check in and see what God’s been doing with me, and which promises have been kept or not. I’m not done with this exercise, but those 12 promises have turned into 81 reflections on experiences and events that have moved each promise from a future hope to a present reality. Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – the life thread – 5/3/14

Where do I find my real life? Where do I find and recognize deep value in what I do, in who I am? I’m in a slow job period right now, that has some good promise of speeding up. I have lots of things I’m wanting to do, a couple of books to write and publish, some songs to learn how to market and actually sell, rowing practices and a couple of races planned, and a couple of contract projects promised in a month or so, but …. none are pushing urgent, and so its hard to keep them going. These are primarily “my” projects, things that give me life while I’m doing them, and I wonder when I’ll switch from doing things because I’m responsible for other’s to doing things because I’m called to them. When will this transition of empty nest and under employment will be complete in me? Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – the way – a love walk – 4/10/14

12 years ago, I decided to write a book of poem reflections on my readings of Isaiah, an old Testament prophet. I had read through Isaiah about 12 times looking for particular parts that somehow stuck out as being “just … Continue reading
