Little Interview

This is a short post for today. ūüôā I trust you won’t mind. I had a little interview on KFUO about my recent article in the¬†Lutheran Witness¬†on vocation and multitasking.Figured maybe that’s reason enough to have a little shameless self-promotion. ha ha haa

By the way, I really like it when I sound prolific. Makes me want to be even more so!

There are so many weird hangups in a writer’s life. Am I wrong? For instance, I keep stalling on my poetry project because I keep writing poetry. And, since I’m self-publishing, who’s to say when I should cut myself off?! Even weirder, my latest writing dilemma has to do with turtles.

Apples are Apples

Not everyone likes poetry and that is fine. At the same time, maybe we can admit that we often like to read rhyming scripts to our kiddos. We like how little lessons can seem a little more learnable. Now, poetry is not always for the sake of learning. Self-expression is the big genre these days, but that is far from refuting poetry as an educational tool. And, as a tool, it can plant a seed, hack a weed, or dig down deep. But, what does that have to do with apples?
