Hello. Welcome to my personal website. I appreciate your wanting to know about me, especially since I am not an A-List blogger and have no desire to be one.
So who am I? I guess the best way to describe myself is that I’m a paradox.
I am of Jewish descent, yet I’m a passionate follower of Jesus. I try to live mindfully and enjoy ancient spiritual practices while working and fully participating in a technology-filled world. I am neither institutional nor Catholic, but I have a strong affinity for Ignatian Spirituality. I am frequently moved emotionally, but I am relatively intelligent, think deeply about things, and give way to sound logic and reason. I believe in limited government and decentralized power, but I support many progressive ideas.
The paradox is seen in the diversity of my close relationships as well. I suppose that’s because deep down I believe that our common humanity is far greater than any differences we have in areas of ethnicity, religion, race, sexuality, or philosophy.
Since this is my personal blog, most of the posts on here are personal in nature. Some deeply so. I value authenticity and vulnerability very highly. There is no particular schedule for how frequently I post. The best way to know when a post comes out is to subscribe to the blog. You can do so by entering your email address in the form on the right side of the home page. (Yes, I hate spam and marketing abuses as much as you do. You won’t get any from me.)
