Well yes, life did get a bit crazy for a few years there. I'm hoping, praying that restarting the chronicle here doesn't jinx the apparently tranquil waters.

So, rather than try to explain where I've been hiding or why, I thought I'd start where I am now and review some stuff, hoping some of it helps someone out there. Look at the accumulated mental clutter, hold it up and see if it still fits, or if it should be thrown away.

Things I have found useful. People who have helped me on the road from where I was, via here, to the future... Concepts, phrases and meaning-bites that help make some sense of it all.

If it seems wierd, park it for now:
When (if) you meet the same obstacles, they may help you.
Or not.

@NickyGumbel - His twitter-feed totally rocks!

Satisficing, filter bubbles and the Comfortable Compromiser (@MattCrossmanUK). Advanced decision-making and avoidance, dealing with change and why it's okay to be an introvert in the Kingdom, even if it's hard to fit in. Susan Cain.

Chocolate, alcohol, lent, exercise, running the race, health, and giving up. Lance Armstrong, David Watson, John Musgrave; and Hezekiah's warning  - how long would it actually take you  to "put your affairs in order"?

Micro-finance, windfalls and girding the "lillies of the field" ready for service. Freedom from and freedom to. Hidden and latent talents, and being brought to a new place "for such a time as this".
Why everyone loves a tenor; uh, yeah, in principle.

Great pastors in quiet backwaters: name and embarrass! =D
Andrew, Jay, Dave, Cilla, D.Martin, Sue:
guardians and guides, true servants of the servants:
Thank-you guys.
Mega-big pastors. Seen by thousands,
but read watched or heard online in ministry uncountable,
like previous generations of authors.
Do they feel valued too, when the hype dies down?
Do they see a return, a result for their work?
Pray for them all.  Hug as many as you can,
as often as you can (but ask permission first!)

So - what's in your "Favourites" and "Recent History" today?
Would you be happy to have them published?
Is it time to "Clear History" and make a new start?

More soon....

She's back....

"What a caterpillar calls the end of the world, the world calls a butterfly" (Thanks to Richard Bach for that one.)

Sorry for the gap in postings; I have been rather busy doing life.

I could not in 2008 have envisaged being where I am today, but huge thanks to everyone who has helped get me from there to here. Your name is Legion, you are many.  You are valued more than you know.

Hephzi is out for repair and general overhaul.
Expect her back one day, transformed!

what we are to become has not yet been revealed;
all we know is that we shall be like Him....

"Next year in Jerusalem then, in Jerusalem at Peace"

For i know the plans i have for you, says the Lord,
Plans to give you hope and a future...
