In Mourning

I was going write a post on Spiritual Warfare, but then something truly sad happened this past week. For anyone reading this who doesn’t already know: Supreme Court Justice and all-around incredible woman Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away. In honor of her, I remember. Women are people too. And no human person exists purely for […]

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 […]

Pray Without Ceasing

I’m probably going to take a couple days off from public posting again, mostly because I spent most of the past few days working on this book until my brain ran out of thoughts. I wrote over 10,000 words, which is a lot even for me. When I type it out like that, I’m like […]

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. […]

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 […]

Letter to God: …

Dear God, FYI it is still not too late for me to convert to atheism. People do it every day. Usually I think it’s because this whole God thing doesn’t make sense to them. Me neither. I’ve known you for so long now and okay I am now writing you at 4 AM, sorry 4:45 […]

Letter to God: Hi Dad

Hi again, heavenly father, Not a lot to talk about, just checking in before virtual Mass at my local church which is a couple miles from my house but feels miles away. I’m thinking now about the fact that my biological father passed away this past fall. I believe he is in heaven, and therefore […]

Letter to God: Strange Dreams

Dear God, Oh man that salutation sounds funny now. I had the weirdest dream about a few minutes ago, and it’s already fading, so I’m not going to write it down, but sometimes I have these strange, late night dreams – nightmares(?) really. I just had one. And it’s like I won’t be able to […]

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. […]
