I have to sort through some things.
In the past five days, I’ve gotten several pieces of information that require some sorting through. No, nothing on the blog or related to comments on the blog. Just some indirect personal observations about me and the residue of my old life that require some thought before being vomited out onto the blog. I need to be less defensive about some of it, I think, before I can write it and post it. I’ll get back to you on that one.
I did, however, set aside A practical guide to Buddhist Meditation in favor of a book Doc bought for me called The Spirituality of Imperfection: Storytelling and the Search for Meaning. One of the things I’m thinking through is the statement made by a friend of mine earlier in the week that I was “broken”. I know what he was trying to say, or, rather, I think I know what he was trying to say, but I rather took exception to the way he said it. I’m not disagreeing, mind, because I think we are all flawed in some way. All less than perfect. All “broken” in some way. But, that’s one of those things I’m working on getting my head around. And, of course, the book was well timed, so it’s become a priority.
More this week as things bubble up.
