Letter 5: Prayers for the Jewish People

Dear God, Sigh. I’m definitely going to get fired now. Well if I actually had an actual job as opposed to this odd penchant for letters. Well, I do have an actual job whenever the library reopens. I miss my humble yet perfect library job so much right now. I hope none of them ever […]

Letter 4 – It’s an Emergency! To the Library!

Dear God, I am using Buffy the Vampire Slayer humor, so you know this must be serious. I only rely on Buffy humor for a Level 4 or above emergency. Kidding. There are no codes. Our world is in trouble right now. I was going to talk about the Eucharist today – but haha – […]

Letter 3 – Romance

Dear God, I am feeling a good deal better today. Letting go of things I need to let go of, one piece at a time. Anyway, so romance novels. My main problem with romance novels is that I’ve yet to write one that didn’t either feel like peering inside someone else’s private relationship or else […]

Voices 8: Tiamat’s Wrath

I’m titling this post after the latest Expanse book. This post should probably have a Delusions of Grandeur warning, except – nah, not really. Nothing delusional about it. I was going to wait to post all of these in order, but I’m kind of done with the backdoor drama of it all. Ready to move […]

Letter 2 – Loneliness

Dear God, There are two things that really bother me right now: writing and loneliness. It’s hard feeling so very alone like all the time. I know what you’re going to say: Foxes have dens, et cetera, but … so many of my fellow believers have their places, their tribes. They get titles and positions. […]

Voices 4 – We ALL Mess Up Sometimes

Everyone messes up sometimes. Even me. Sometimes, I mess up more than once in a single day. That’s why today I’m going to talk about mantras. In Hindu mysticism, mantra refers to a sound, a series of words, that can help to clear your mind. It’s basically about introducing good voices into your head. It […]

Voices 5: Be Still and Know

In the midst of this busy world, I’m assaulted daily – by ads, by social media, by voices I barely even recognize. Trying to get inside people’s heads, to get us to buy things and value things, to think a certain way, there’s literally a whole industry dedicated to this. It’s called marketing. I’ve found […]

Letter to God 1 – Just Checking In

Dear God, As you will recall, heavenly Father, I used to have this other blog series, where I wrote increasingly pointed letters to God my Spouse aka Yeshua aka Jesus, about the state of affairs, about where was God anyway. Every now and again, people ask me if I still blog. I stopped – for […]
