About Me

  • I'm a retired professional man, living in the Midwestern United States. This blog is a personal blog and is not directly connected with my former professional practice (although I may draw upon my professional experiences, as well as my personal experiences, in writing my blog posts). This is a place for personal, not professional, opinions.

I think I know what you're writing about here. If I'm right, well I did that myself recently and it cost me dearly.

However life moves on and we hope we have learned something. Or in my case we pray we have so we don't do it again.

I hope you are well and plan to write more.


I'd like to write more here, because here is where I wrestle with the issues that actually matter to me. While I can't seem to break a lifetime of obsession with ashes and dust, looking back I see the inexorable changes in me shaped by a God who I fear might be as just as He promises.

As always, thank you for your kindness, Sherry.


Powerful post, Kevin - it really made me stop and think about a current situation that I am in. Thanks for touching my conscience and my heart, as usual. And I do hope you write here more frequently - I am slowly but surely waking back up to the healing power of the written word, both in my own writing and that of others. Raising a two and a half year old (my granddaughter) brings a whole new perspective to my life.


Thanks, Val. I agree that the written word can have healing power. Unfortunately, it can also have the power to wound, and I've spent too much time employing it for the latter purpose. With the time left allotted to me, I'm going to try to focus on the higher purpose.

As to your family troubles, please know that you are in my prayers.
