A weekly serving of 7 things for you to savor
On Sundays I send an email containing my reflections on interesting things I find laying about, seasoned with some quotes from my collection. 5 minutes of reading, no hooks, no guest posts— View the latest issue. Like? Sign up.

Discovery • Reflection • Efficacy
Those three words describe my practice—the journey of my whole life. As a part of my practice, this blog has a specific purpose: It’s a vehicle for my process of reflection. I write, here, because I am still learning… still trying to listen:

I used to think I wrote because there was something I wanted to say. Then I thought, “I will continue to write because I have not yet said what I wanted to say”; but I know now I continue to write because I have not yet heard what I have been listening to.

The idea of repetition and stasis are a fool’s errand. We are changed from one day to the next, one moment, one breath. Acknowledge that you are moving and the question then is speed not whether, and Plato says not to discourage yourself over that. Thank you for a Sunday morning reflection.

I have so many thoughts about so many parts of all of this! Great email.

Huzzah! Thank you for putting these out. They are quite enjoyable. I got to the white-on-orange and my brain started tingling. Maybe it was the lack of coffee but initially I could not place it. I suspect maybe there’s some deep-seated psychological repression too. The theme of the essay(?) was clear to me without being explicit. Stephen King would be proud. Keep on,

Wait a minute… ‘That was the first time I effectively closed an entire golf course.’ …the ‘first time’ implies other stories are on deck. :)
