Through Mexico City airport a few days before the earthquake. And next week we'll go back home by the same route.

Nashville TN, various points in Arkansas, now N.E. Mississippi, next week back to Nashville to retrace steps.

What made yours interesting?

Well, my work situation has become uncertain for the first time in over eight years.  That's the biggie.  My two main clients, both seminaries in Chicago, want to hire me directly and share me between the two of them.  My current employer is not too keen on the idea.  I knew that my current employer was a typical company, but I didn't expect them to be this ugly.

Other than that, I'm getting pretty close to having a rough prototype for a device used for geological mapping that I'm pretty excited about.  I'm planning on getting custom PCBs made up for it, and learning enough CAD to 3d print the cases.  I'm hoping to get it certified with the Open Source Hardware Association, too.

I'm thankful that I've learned how to channel anxiety into creative distractions instead of self-destructive ones.

Great to be able to focus that concern in positive ways. I'm still trying to learn that.

Have been away from the internet for several days, while with family and friends. Arrived home last night, after unhappy experiences with airline. We're safe and well, so that's what matters.

We cannot escape from our daily routine, because it will go with us wherever we go…. God must be sought and found in the things of our world. By regarding our daily duties as something performed for the honour and glory of God, we can convert what was hitherto soul-killing monotony, to a living worship of God in all our actions. Everyday life must become itself our prayer.

Today's a holiday here. I went to the office anyway. Quiet on the streets. Found a place to eat lunch. Wasn't terribly productive, but better than taking more time off.

In our reading group, we’re doing a series I call “Impressive chapters of the Bible.” The choice of chapters is somewhat arbitrary, of course. Or maybe "personal" is the better term. Since we’re traveling next week, I have two more weeks to wind down the series. So tonight, it’s 1 John 4.

High temps at #CrossFit today, but we sweated it out. Lots of weightlifting in the mix today. Workouts are good even for old people.

I lost my job last year. It was horrible, my world was turned upside down. But I got a new one. And I strongly feel I belong here. With these people and these tasks. There is a meaning. I am supposed to be right here, right now. I don't know why or for how long, but here and now this is right. And that word of today fit so perfectly:-)

So glad to hear that, Maria!

I missed the eclipse, below th' equator,
And closing doors of the elevator,
The last piece of the chocolate pie,
The timing of my smart reply.

Yesterday was difficult, mentally. The day previous we traveled 3 hours away for the wake of a 7-month-old of a couple dear to us. She had spent half of her short life in ICU with heart surgeries. She had 5 cardiac arrests on Monday, a sixth on Tuesday, which she didn't survive. The parents have #faith, as we all do. The #pain is still present. It will pass, mostly. The tears will dry, and the little one has left us with feelings of #gratitude for having graced our lives, if but for a moment.

Emotional intensity does not define true #spirituality. Often, the emotionally intense person is deeply carnal and selfish.
