The Church on the Corner #photoaday #project365

182 of 365. Our Daily Challenge — Architecture. This is a Presbyterian Church in Brookhaven, MS, the town where I grew up. It’s one of the most interesting architectural structures in town, and it’s still a major landmark to me. I use it to remember directions. I rarely think in street names. I just think […]

Along for the Ride #photoaday #project365

180 of 365. 95 in my Cranes for Hope project. Our Daily Challenge — What little boys are made of. I’m pretty sure there’s a frog somewhere in the list of things little boys are made of. Since I didn’t have a little boy around today, I had to make do with this.

The Passage by Justin Cronin

42 in my 2011 book blogging challenge. The Passage has been sitting on my bedside table for a full year. A friend suggested it last summer. I rushed right out and bought a copy at my local Walmart and proceeded to set it right there where I would see it and be sure to pick […]

Area 51 by Annie Jacobsen

41 in my 2011 book blogging challenge. I embarrassed to even say I read Area 51. It was like reading an extra super long issue of the National Inquirer. I saw Annie Jacobsen on The Daily Show, and Jon Stewart asked if UFO conspiracy buffs call her up to tell her she’s crazy. If they […]

Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas

40 in my 2011 book blogging challenge. Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas won the 2011 Christian Book of the Year Award from the Evangelical Christian Publisher’s Association. I think it could win awards on anyone’s list, though. It’s one of the most fascinating biographies I’ve read in a while. Dietrich Bonhoeffer started […]

Hanging Around #photoaday #project365

176 of 365. Our Daily Challenge — Upside Down. This should also be #92 in my Cranes for Hope project, but I’m having a little issue with Flickr right now, and some of my prior photos seem to be missing. The paper cranes project is supposed to be a test of patience. I’m trying not […]

The Cat Next Door #photoaday #project365

175 of 365. Our Daily Challenge — Tranquil. I hung out with this cat for a little while today. He looked pretty tranquil to me, and he sort of convinced me that tranquility is the way to go. And in the spirit of tranquility, here’s today’s crane. This is number 91 in my Cranes for […]
