When will life lead me to myself A piece of marble to be chiseled To uncover gifts and grace When will life lead me to you A tide that presses the driftwood to shore To carry and conjoin When will life lead me to God A bud bursting to meet sun A bird, mid-flight, looking… Read More Looking for Air
My last post was April 17, 2021. It has been almost a year since writing a blog post. I have taken a bit of a hiatus this year with writing in general. There is so much to write about. Here’s to starting again.
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about talent and not wasting our days. I’ve been thinking about procrastination, scrolling on social media, and browsing the internet. I’ve been thinking about work and responsibility. I’ve been praying for change. Last night, I was sitting in my car outside my parents house. My wife was finishing up… Read More What We Give Back to God
At the start of a half marathon you feel good. The wind is pushing you forward. The sweat has yet to start dripping down your face. The sun is out. Yet, a few miles in things start to feel different. Your breathing quickens. You feel a small side cramp that seems to grow larger each… Read More Feelings and Truth
Christmas break is over for most. This means it’s time to get back at it. To the grind. Whether it is work, school, or life, the relaxed atmosphere of Christmas/New Year’s is behind us.

I was driving back home from a day of working in the hospital. The 45 minute commute is a time where I can relax and focus on the tasks ahead of me. All of a sudden, I get a call. My radio lights up with a number that is from the surrounding area. Oh, maybe… Read More Spam Thoughts
Lately, I have been on my surgery rotation for medical school. This is a unique rotation because I am given the opportunity to observe many different procedures. Sometimes I can even “scrub in”, which is medical jargon for assisting the surgeon. At the start of my day, I go to the locker room and don… Read More When is their surgery?
This morning I was sitting in Church when the music started. This means that the priest is coming into the Church and the Mass is starting. I never usually notice the music. It provides a beautiful backdrop to the worship, but because it does not change much it is not something my mind wanders towards.… Read More The Organist with One Arm
The Carthusian religious order’s motto goes something like this… As the world spins, the cross stands firm. Today I am going to change it up a bit. As your mind spins, the cross stands firm. When everything does not make sense. When you feel like the word confused doesn’t even do it justice. When you… Read More The mind spins, the cross stands firm.
