It is 10:49 AM on Friday December 13th, 2019. I finally have time to take a breath as the past two weeks have been a complete blur of work and events. Last week was our national sales meeting and holiday party in Texas. Including travel time that takes up a big 4 day chunk and…… Continue reading Journal Entry 12.13.19
Posts about religion. Mostly Christianity and Catholicism, the ones I know best.
At 42 years of age my understanding of authority has evolved and I wanted to get these thoughts down. When you’re a kid there are people you just have to obey without question.

Travels in Asia and Africa – 1325-1354 – Ibn Battúa

I love history and traveling and here is a first hand account from a well traveled (for the times) man from over 600 years ago. This is unlike a history book. History books are the past seen through…… Continue reading Travels in Asia and Africa – 1325-1354 – Ibn Battúa
Spring Equinox – Easter 2019
It is 6:05 AM on Sunday, – Easter – April 21st. The Easter baskets are out, eggs have been hidden throughout the house and I’m waiting for the household to wake up. As for me, I woke up at 4:00 AM and this time actually got up. I put the dishes away, cleaned the few…… Continue reading Spring Equinox – Easter 2019
I read the Alchemist for the first time around 1996, almost a decade after it was originally published. Like many books I’ve read long ago I had forgotten most of it. It was a chance encounter seeing it featured as a book to digitally borrow from my library app and I listened to it during…… Continue reading The Alchemist
