My friend Charles has been concerned about my presenting a break-neck pace on the blog. I assure him and any interested observers I’m doing fine. Paschale Solemnitatis was written up in May. Dives in Misericordiae was finished up this past week and is now scheduled into mid-August.
Stress levels are lowering considerably now that we have job, apartment, moving truck, and a plan for getting where we need to go.
Did I mention buyers? Some parents nailed down an offer on our house yesterday for their kids. Given the crazy situation for housing in my college town, this isn’t as indulgent and nutty a plan as it might seem. Own a house for the kids for a few years–paying a mortgage is more economical than rent in these parts, believe me. Sell the house after graduation. I didn’t believe it either, but it seems to happen often enough here.
We’ll be driving out to new horizons on the 27th. Meanwhile, blogging will appear to continue through these final days in Iowa. A lot is written ahead of time, and the occasional news commentary is really nothing much to produce. There was a time when I was looking up possible writing jobs, so it was important to keep blogging through the Spring months.
I probably won’t start up another liturgy document for awhile. Maybe September. If anything, writing may trail off a bit next month. But Laudato Si posts are in a queue that stretches to October.
Of course, suggestions are always welcome. Just drop an email or comment in a box.
