Whither this blog?

If you’ve followed this blog you’ve noticed I haven’t been posting nearly as much as I could or should lately.  To be honest I’ve been struggling trying to figure out just what exactly I want this blog to be – should it be purely “professional”, meaning no personal posts, should it be purely personal and be just my reflections on whatever is catching my eye at the moment, or should it be something else?

The answer, as near as I can tell, was given me in a post by the indubitable Fr. Z in a recent post when he quoted an ancient axiom, “in medio stat virtus” or “virtue stands in the middle”.  Strange that this reminder should have to come ad extra when it is something I find myself saying in various forms many times over the course of a week.  Jeff Vegihe at St. Peter Canisius Apostolate recently went through just this thought process as well and I owe him a debt of gratitude for his willingness to be upfront and open about it.  Knowing that someone who has already done so well has these same questions helped me to get past the first questioning and really be ready for the head knock delivered by the good Father.

I can’t promise there won’t be potholes in posting here and there, but I can say that I’ve come to realize the time for dithering is long since past.  Onward, upward, forward.
