I’ve moved twice since I last wrote on this blog. This was due to losing my employment as a public school administrator and my wife losing her job as a manager at IBM. I’ve been working as a college professor in Tennessee and now am in WV.
We lost it all between 2009 and 2010 – the house – our credit – everything. However, in it all a most kind Providence was at work. Our marriage of many years is better than ever – I think I have realized truly what a treasure I have in my best friend, my life partner, my wonderful wife. We’ve streamlined our life – as seen when all of your worldly goods can be moved in a 14′ U-Haul truck. This was humbling – but was a good thing. I think I’m a more understanding person. I’ve also had a strong rebirth of faith – although I would classify myself more as a highly Orthodox Christian. In any case, I believe that is the greatest change in me. Most of my motivations are now wrapped in the context of my own understandings of the Christian ethos. I am content.
I am more moderate in politics than I was in some ways – certainly more Libertarian and hopefully more thoughtful.
More to follow.
