Impact

How would you describe nostalgia? I don't necessarily mean the things that stir up nostalgic feelings within you. I don't mean the sights or sounds, the tastes or smells... I mean the feeling itself. Here's how real nostalgia makes me feel... It's like this deep ache. It's not painful, but it's like something has gone … Continue reading Impact

Life Story: Chapter Seventy Four

Welcome to a series of stories that basically make up my autobiography. It’s not entirely thorough, but I’ll do the best I can with the memories locked away inside my head.

What’s Old Is New Again

I'm back y'all. Did you miss me? Don't answer that. I'd like to just assume that you did and that you've clicked on this post because you have seen sitting by your computer for weeks just waiting for new content from your friendly neighborhood Single Guy. So I'm gonna just assume that. Okay? I'm glad … Continue reading What’s Old Is New Again

A Year Ago…

It was one year ago today that I announced on this blog that I would be leaving the world of school counseling to join my church staff on a full-time basis. I was super excited about the opportunity that had been presented to me. One year later, I'm no less excited about what I'm doing … Continue reading A Year Ago…

Not a Sentimental Bone

A couple months back, I got a call from my mom letting me know that she had come across a couple of boxes full of old keepsakes that clearly belonged to me. Several years ago, I let her know that, as a rule, if I don't know about it, then I won't miss it. But … Continue reading Not a Sentimental Bone

Cornerstone

Growing up in church, I sang. All the time. In fact, most of the kids that grew up at Villa Heights Baptist Church sang. It's just what we did. It was part of our Wednesday night routine. From ages 2 to 102. That's an exaggeration. Not everyone sang in the adult choir. But I have … Continue reading Cornerstone

I’ve Been Busy

I hate that excuse. Everyone's busy. And it's a horrible thing to say when someone asks how you're doing. "Busy..." How long has it been since I've written something on this blog that wasn't a Question of the Week, an AFI movie review, or a Buffy related post? No, really... I'm asking. It feels like … Continue reading I’ve Been Busy

The Lure of the Dark Side

I've been a PC. All my adult life. There was a time, in high school, when I flirted with the idea of using a Mac. But that was because all of the writing labs at school were equipped with Apple products. And that was before having anything with the Apple logo on it was the … Continue reading The Lure of the Dark Side
