Prayer Works

I’m going through old, old papers from my time at Our Lady of the Lake University when I was working on my BS in Religious Studies (with a minor in philosophy, of course!). I remember heading to the computer lab to work on these (sometimes at the last minute!), and, while I’m sure I had […]

Sixteen Year Blogiversary

I was perusing my blog all the way back to the first post I’d ever posted, and noticed it was May 15, 2004. So while I missed it by two days, this is my 16th anniversary┬á of digital authorship! Will I continue? Sporadically, I’m sure. Does anyone read this? I don’t think so ­čÖé Am […]

Another Moment
