I often feel a sense of frustration at social media and the way that it has made our lives this passive participation in being real and fundamental to one another. But I know…wholeheartedly…that I do love the ebb and flow of my interactions with people from all walks of life from all over my past as I work out my daily struggles, successes, and plan for my future. It isn’t easy. But despite what some say…it is real. At least it is for some of us. If it isn’t real for you….go away and leave the rest of us alone.
Fiction and Non-Fiction
In my quest to get to 65 books in 2013, I read two entire books today. Once a crazy book of fiction by Christopher Moore and another an amazing statement of faith by Sarah Bessey. Both have their place in my life. Both have their spot in my brain. And I am grateful for who I am because of the words so many authors have put on the page.
A quiet blessing to the person who first grew the grape that makes the amazing Malbec. That is all.
