I Aim To Be Scarce

Folks, if you happened to drop in last week, you may have seen an excerpt from my memoir-in-progress. In it, I grapple with who my dad is, the forces that shaped him, and the watershed moments in my own life. While it does tread through some heavy territory, it is ultimately a tale of grace and redemption.

Or it will be.

If I can get done. Along with the memoir, I’ve also taken up the mantle of NaNoWriMo, or national novel writing month. Which means I’m now not just working on one book, but two. Or maybe I’m just crazy.

Time will tell.

In any case, what this means is that I’ll have little time for this blog for the foreseeable future. In truth, I’ve been feeling called in this direction for some time, but have resisted it out of fear.

What will happen to my platform?

I’m not sure. What I do know is that “he who seeks to save his life shall lose it,” and “unless a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone.”

All of which is to say: I aim to be scarce for awhile.

This is not goodbye, but rather goodbye for now.

See you in the coming weeks, and months.

All my best,


“On A Break”

In case you didn’t know: like Ross and Rachel, I’m on a break. And like Dr. Dobson, I’m doing it to focus on my family. (In case you’re wondering: “Did he just pair a Friends reference with Focus On The Family?” Yes, yes I did–it’s how I roll).

See you sometime in the new year!

Taking A Break

During the last several days, many have observed my behavior here, and in love and friendship have reached out. I appreciate each of you taking the time, and showing your care, to me (and my family). This means more than you know.

It’s become clear to me that I have some things I need to work on. As such, I won’t stop writing (I can’t not write), but I will stop posting for awhile. Can’t say how long that will be–whether a week, a month, six months, or a year–only time will tell. This blog will remain online, and its archives searchable.

I hope you will still be here when I return. If you would like to keep in touch, my email is gandalf239 [at] gmail [dot] com.

Many blessings to you!
