LTG: There Is Love

Hi God, It’s me again, the problem child. As it turns out, I do not have Covid-19. I should be happy about this, and I am, but mostly I am still quite exhausted. It’s this surreal moment that gives me a chance to reassess my life choices leading up to this moment in time. I […]

LTG: Reparation for Sin

Hi dad aka 1st person of the trinity, A week ago, I had this dream. A guy was house-sitting for me while I was out of town. Then, he decided to rent my house out to some stranger. When I came back to visit, I found my friend living in a much cheaper house. With […]

Letter to God: Letting Go

Dear God, Well, yesterday went badly in several ways. Top of my list is realizing that, okay, I really need to stop going to confession to have my sins forgiven. I need to stop even thinking about it. Because obviously this is not working. I know you have told me this many times, Father, so […]

Letter to God: Hearts of Stone

Dear God, Whenever I’m really at a loss to figure out something, my brain starts reaching for random metaphor that won’t help, like the Heart of Gold from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. In Hitchhiker’s Guide, Heart of Gold is this ship that flies by balancing probabilities. How interesting would that be? I don’t know. […]

Quick Update

My real job will probably be back as of the week of June 1st. I can hardly wait. I love my library job. This whole religion thing – I love God the Father and I love Jesus, but I mostly feel like a useless wreck when it comes to trying to understand or explain either […]

Letter to God: Ascension Thursday

Dear God, So Ascension Thursday is here, my second least favorite Catholic holiday. My first least favorite as you know is Palm Sunday, where as a layperson, I’m supposed to not only pretend to “join the crowd” but where they’re actually going to hand me a “blessed palm” and I’m supposed to respond by thanking […]

Letter to God: Early Morning on Phone

Dearest God the Father, Okay it’s now getting to be a really annoying habit, this waking up in the wee hours with all these thoughts in my head. First, I love you. Next, I can hardly wait for this quarantine to end. For real. As in no more stay at home orders. No more masks. […]

Letter to God: The Road Less Traveled

Dear God, True confession, I am now awake for an hour again approaching 5A.M., this time going through my Facebook, reading a great, thought-provoking blog post and generally making better use of my time. I just spent a good fifteen minutes looking at multivariable calculus and thinking yes, among other things I love math. I love […]

Letter to God: Cryptic Much?

Hi again who or whatever you are, Yes, some days be like that. I’m mostly writing now because that last one ended on a cryptic note. To be about as clear as stained glass, I’m not talking about my relationship with your son anymore. Because, reasons. Also, I really didn’t – and still don’t know […]
