Peacock Theology from Pope Francis
It seems that Pope Francis’ question, “Who am I to judge?” attracted answers from everyone with access to the internet. Now, I’m as
smitten with this humble pontiff as a Southern Baptist girl can be, and I could
not be more charmed with the world’s response...

Vandalizing Vandalism
I've always had a particular aversion to vandalism. Unlike thievery or speeding or even killing someone who "needs killing", vandalism has no obvious tangible benefit. I suppose the release of rage is a possible motive, or maybe it's the thought of hurting ...

Digging Up Your Digs
500 years from now, an archaeologist accidentally stumbles on the ruins of your home, long buried underground. What will she learn about early-21st-century humans by going through (what remains of) your stuff? I haunt estate sales as a archaeologist on the ...

Lost Things
Why does finding something that was lost feel so much better
than not losing it? Everyone knows the instant blast of happiness when lost keys
show up. My sister in law sent a massive group text with a photo of her lost
eyeglasses that she found in her dishw...

Who I Am and Why I'm Here
http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_assignment/101-introduce/ The following paragraph is my original introduction to my blog... "One of my favorite quotes from my grandfather is, "I'm going to have to study on that." He was a man who fixed things. Cars, toys,...

Story
Tagline
I'm a professional teacher and a rank amateur writer.
Introduction
I'm a product of Alabama and Mississippi who came of age in the thick of the Civil Rights era in Birmingham in a blue collar community of steelworkers. My faith tradition is Southern Baptist but it doesn't fit well any more. I vote Democrat if I can find one on the ballot in Alabama. I'm older than the internet, Sesame Street, and POTUS but younger than I will be tomorrow.
