I don’t have new content today, at least not in the way of “Hey, come check out my new post on [PS]!”
I got pretty sick this week, and I have been trying to prepare things at work should I have to suddenly leave when my wife goes into labor. As such, I haven’t had much time to write. I have several pieces and thoughts in the works, but I am only about half way through all of it. I know, I know: “excuses, excuses…”
I would like to take today’s space to share a few things with you:
If you haven’t been over to Popgun Chao$, you really should stop by. I greatly enjoy Cody’s analysis of comics and sub-pop culture. I don’t even think you would have to be a comic expert to enjoy his articles; if you’ve ever heard of any major super-hero, there’s something here for you. If you’re not in to comics, there’s something here for you. In fact, you could start here.
You should also go by Andrew Eaton’s blog. He’s begun a discussion on a pretty interesting article about reading the Bible from a literary perspective. Go over and get involved.
This is a really cool website: In Bb 2.0
Currently I am reading Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton. If you are unfamiliar, it’s a novel about South Africa under Apartheid rule during WWII. The prose is brilliant and poetic; I’m only about half-way through, and it has already brought me to tears. Swing over to your library or book store and pick up a copy if you’re looking for a good summer read.
Recently, my school’s TSA chapter raised over $2,000 for the American Cancer Society. I pledged to shave my head if they raised over $2,000. I will be donating my hair to Locks of Love, and the event will take place late next week. I am impressed at the level of giving and the spirit of generosity that was displayed by our students, faculty, and community during the course of this fundraiser. I am proud to work among such people.
Lastly, here is the plug for guest writers. I don’t want to have to say it again, but I will; please don’t make me beg you to send in submissions.
Thanks, and I love you all. I am enjoying myself as I write for this blog, and all of the encouragement and positive feed back has truly been a blessing.
God is good.
Please come back on Tuesday, as I expect regular content to resume once I finish up this week. Thanks, as always, for reading.
