This blog seems to have settled into something I didn’t intend. I see a news article and think of some little meditation relating to it. There’s nothing wrong with that. It seems that no matter where I start I wind up some Christ related payoff at the end. I can’t say I do that on purpose. It just works out that way. Sometimes I’m surprised where I wind up. And there’s nothing wrong with any of that.
For years I’ve been writing little stories. I’ve tried to write a novel or two but I just get bogged down. Maybe there’s a trick to turning a short story into a novel that I don’t know about. Maybe it’s just a matter of discipline that I don’t have. Anyway 3,000 to 5,000 words seems to be all I can muster out of an idea. I like to start with a ‘what’s wrong with this picture’ idea and see where it leads. Like my news article posts these all seem to end up at the same place. They all turn out to be strange little things that don’t fit any genre. I’ve never figured out what to do with them.
So I’m going to start posting them. For the most part I will have to post them in multiple episodes. But that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to launch them into the vast ocean of ones and zeros that is the internet. Who knows. Maybe one of them will wash up on a digital beach somewhere and do somebody some good.
