Where’s that restart button?

A plethora of reasons, all entirely insufficient, have kept me from this august site for some time.  Primarily work has kept me, as the saying goes, busier than a one-armed paper hanger (apologies to all those with only one arm and to anyone who might hang paper for a living) and even in my down time I have been entirely too frazzled to cobble together sentences sufficiently coherent to make worth anyone’s while, both mine for writing and yours for reading.  Secondarily, and partly caused by the former, I’ve been battling the feeling that it’s largely a waste of time to post on most subjects as they’re already covered elsewhere and far more thoroughly than I’m capable in my sadly limited time.  I’ve been able to start things several times but just never quite been able to coax them into a remotely usable form.

Thankfully I think I’ve (finally) learned better than to make rash statements of the “here I come with a roaring blogging vengeance” type.  Rather, I’m simply going to do my best.  Sometimes it’ll be topical, sometimes it’ll be on a complete tangent.  Sometimes it’ll be interesting, sometimes it’ll be intellectual sawdust.  But hey, when the question is “to write or not to write” I can’t stand being in the latter camp for very long at all.  So I apologize in advance to the feed readers of anyone still following this blog.

I leave you now with one of my favorite songs, sung at one of the great times in my nation’s recent memory:

    I love that hymn. In fact, I am singing it this Sunday for the communion meditation here at the seminary. 🙂

    It is heartening to know you’re able to sing and hear such beautiful music in the Seminary. Now if only I could ever hear it in a parish setting that’d be absolutely wonderful! 😉

    Well, it has been a rough semester this year. We started out well, with our rector being made Bishop, but we have lost two cherished faculty this week, one who died last Saturday night (turned my song into a very personal prayer for a priest whom I considered a good friend and favorite table companion) and another who had a massive heart attack on Monday and isn’t expected to recover.

    Please pray for our community, as we are going through a very difficult period of lass.
