What? Matters.

This is an attempt to get something flowing by dislodging a few things…..

It’s been a bit since I’ve written.   Not that I haven’t been thinking, but I wonder…

What is the point …..?

Who listens?  Why discuss?  Why care?

I don’t wanna be the blogger that writes about pointless dribble.  But then what is pointless to you, may have great meaning to me (and vias versa)

My daughter had an amazing quinceñeara – my son is loving college and is starting spring football – and my other son is about to be the become a dad start his own business and he will be great at it both!

I’ve got many thoughts on these things, as well as the conflicts and transitions in my life; and yet I hesitate to write.  Lazy? apathetic?  I don’t think so.

I’m trying to figure out WHAT? Matters.

Does it matter for me to pour out my thoughts to have someone say “nice piece ” (hear the golf applause?).

Or why write just  to have the guardians of orthodoxy  blast me with a fire-hose of their socio-religious doctrines, and not listen seriously to a counter point that may disrupt their world of wonderland?

Do I write to persuade and inform, or maybe just to vent and process it?  And then there are issues I want to process in public, yet because of the dignity of those involved, can’t.

What is the point?

If blogging is a way to extend physical community, not replace it of be a substitute for it, then we can grow and learn together, (I do need you!).

If blogging is a from of self-congratulations and narcissism?  I’d be better off with a good mirror and trip to Southdale.

What?  Matters.

  1. I think it matters because it’s nice (for me anyway) to catch up with you and your family because we don’t always have time at church or during the week. When I read your blog and see your photos and your FB updates, God keeps you in my mind and often prompts me to pray for you and your family.

    By the way…congrats to Morgan on her 15th and your sons on their college/football stuff and on becoming a dad! How exciting! Blessings to you all!

  2. I enjoy the blog. Keeps me up and what’s in your head. Good fodder for conversations. But, in many ways I think blogs survive when they are primarily for your own benefit. If it helps you process things, thoughts etc. The awesome. If not, ditch it

    I think this (above) is part of your problem. You assume that those who oppose you haven’t actually considered your arguments. How arrogant is that?
