It's been awhile...

It's been almost 2 years since I last posted, but I've been around. It's not that I haven't had anything to say, it's just that there are others saying the same things I would have and perhaps better. What has one more to add? What have I to say?

As it's said, some things change and some things stay the same. Life isn't static. Two years isn't very long in the grand scheme of life, but it's enough to realize some of life's nuances. Change happens. It's true, life is what happens when you're making other plans. One plan was that of going to Jackson Hole. I've wanted to travel there for over 25 years. Never had been able to afford it, what with jobs, or the lack thereof, or family responsibilities. God willing, in less than 24 hours, life and planning will meet. Perhaps that is motivation to write these lines. My something to say. My views of Jackson, WY have been limited to webcam shots, such as the one above. So while there has been no one around to update this, there have been trees falling in the forest.

Many years have I spent time being part of what I thought was church. Now I realize the misconception, and that discovery came about through some anguish, disappointment and even betrayal. Church has become an institution, with some similarities with another kind. There is no going to church, only being. More could I say, but for now it would be better left unsaid.

And so for now I live and move and have my being in Christ.
