Just checking in…

Science / Travel

Sorry about the silence today. I spent most of the day in the back of the Bishop’s car. We drove down to Green Valley AZ (south of Tucson) where we attended a luncheon for the retired clergy and their spouses. I was able to do a little email and surfing from the back seat on the ride down (hooray for the 21st century) but on the way back up, we all got involved in a […]

On the road… again

Travel / Web/Tech

I‚Äôm sitting here in the airport in Phoenix, waiting to catch the red-eye to Chicago. From Chicago, I have an early morning flight that will bring me to Ottawa and the North American Cathedral Dean‚Äôs conference. It‚Äôs my first time to attend the yearly meeting of the ‚Äúmystical fellowship of deans‚Äù and I‚Äôve been looking forward to it since I learned I was invited. Sadly, I‚Äôm traveling alone. One of the things that got lost […]

Temporarily without address…

Centrists / Travel

Sorry for the silence on the blog these last few days. There’re lots of things happening in the Anglican world at the moment, and sadly none of them have very much to do with celebrating the Feast of the Lord’s Incarnation. I’ll have some catching up to do over the next few weeks. On Saturday night this week I took the midnight flight to Bethlehem PA to surprise our daughter at her final performance of […]

Need more things to see…


When I was a kid, I remember seeing pictures of two places on earth that I promised myself I would visit some day. One was the Monastery of Mont St. Michael in Normandy. The other was the Meteor Crater in Arizona. I had a chance to visit Mont St. Michael a year and half ago when my brothers and I spent a week touring around northern France. This Thanksgiving weekend I had a chance to […]

Why airlines are having trouble


I’m writing this on the plane as I’m flying back to Phoenix after spending the week back in Bethlehem at a meeting working on a new project for Church Publishing. I flew out to Phoenix and I’m returning on unnamed airline (******* ***). I’m pretty sure that if it is at all possible, this will be my last time flying this airline. Both the flight out and the flight back have been oversold. It was […]

Travel notes


I‚Äôm writing this from Elk City, Oklahoma – which is about 100 miles or so east of Amarillo TX (if the signs and my math is to be trusted.) It‚Äôs been a fun day driving. A friend of mine has been asking me each day about the ‚Äúcoolest‚Äù thing that I‚Äôve seen as I travel. Today’s would have to be the signs telling me that I was entering and leaving the various tribal nation lands […]

Memorial Day 2006

Current Affairs / Travel

“In Flanders Fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.” Kendall Harmon’s posting of this poem reminds us all of what this Memorial day is actually memorializing.
