I've been away. Well, not away, but re-working my life around the new baby. I'm learning him; he's learning me. And it takes a while to get the knack of a new person in the house, especially with a toddler and preschooler present. So forgive my somewhat intermittent presence here.
I also have a couple of articles due for the New Living Translation Web site on spiritual disciplines (I'm winding down a series on Simplicity and introducing a series on Confession - a tightrope act that, a spiritual discipline so rich and different for Catholics than for my target audience). I need to write those today as they're due today or tomorrow. It's been difficult to find the time to write just as it has been difficult to blog, which is, by the way, writing - though less lucrative.
I've got things I need to write here, and they will get written. But it probably won't be till Friday night or Saturday.
