Share Your World #18

Go to Cee’s Life Photography Blog to participate in Share Your World! Do you play video/computer game? Which one(s) or most recent? I am hopelessly addicted to Gardens of Time on FB. When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen? Pencil. I love pencils! They seem so natural and earthy; plus I like the way they feel. Bonus: Erasers for use while working the NY Times Crossword Puzzle. What has surprised me about blogging? How much I enjoy it it, and how much I’ve learned about everything from other bloggers.

Redeeming Twitter Theology

Italian Alps from Anesi, France Photo Credit: Mark Grace I just got through reading a wonderful, thought-provoking essay (okay, okay, a “blog post”) from Ryan Reed entitled “ReconsideringTwitter Theology.” Ryan's warning against trying to do theology on twitter is a marvelous example of what I think it means for Christians to engage the tools that technology has given us . . . Rather than uncritically accepting the tools and someday finding that they have become just another idol, like the bronze serpent Moses lifted ...

Validation By Followers

Have you noticed that in the world of blogging there is a huge emphasis put on "followers"? 'Ooh, look how many followers she has!' For some reason success or failure, happiness or discouragement, 'life or death' seems contingent on how many followers a blog has. There are countless pleas out there on blog discussion groups:  "If you will follow me then I will follow you".  In other words, the numbers are stacked frequently by collusion and not necesssarily by sincere expression of approval or ...

What uplifting book would you recommend I read? Reading books, new and old, is a favorite winter pastime and I suspect the same goes for many others who, like me, prefer to stay ...

Nosh Some Hamentashen

Hamentashen, whose sweet fillings peak through the center of the delicious pastry, have become the symbol of the holiday of Purim. Just like any Hanukkah celebration requires latkes, the Purim celebration needs Hamentashen. You can always purchase them in virtually any supermarket, but why not try making them at home. Here is my Hamentashen recipe that I've been using forever. I use the dough recipe that my Grandmother made. Now, she never wrote a recipe down. It was always, "a pinch ...

Reflections on writing

She wrote: I feel the need to be honest with you, especially, since you are a shining model of honesty and vulnerability on your blog. Wow. Before I even got out of bed this morning, my heart was filled with unexpected joy at having reached someone for whom I have tremendous respect and affection, though our time together was shared many years ago in an place that seems light years away. She also made me wonder how others perceive my words on ...

New Tabbed Section of My Favorites

I have succumbed. I decided to take advantage of Amazon’s template for displaying and commenting on my favorite books. It’s just a neat way to see the covers and read a quick sentence by me about each, then to click to read more about the book, and then, if you want, to add to the shopping cart and go from there. Or, of course, to make a note to yourself and go support your local bookstore! I’ve named favorite books in ...
