My Sabbatical

Over the past 4+ years I have written close to 300 articles on this blog, and have had readers, or at least visitors, from all 50 states, all populated continents, and about 80 nations, including Pakistan and the Russian Federation. 

I’ve written about things that should never be discussed in polite company; politics and religion.

I’ve written my life story.

I’ve written a short story “The Old Man in Apartment 620

But I’m tired … it’s so much easier when you don’t know anything, and so often these days I find myself in a mood where I just don’t want to confront the latest cultural or political outrage; the latest scandal and corruption coming from our leaders.

I’m tired … so I’ve decided to devote some time and energy in consolidating my thoughts and my articles on faith … my faith, into a book. A book where all my experiences and thoughts related to faith can be discovered in one place.

Strange, but years and years ago I saw the musical Jesus Christ Superstar in New York. This was years before I became a follower of that superstar. The music was incredible, but the one that comes to mind now is “Let the World Turn Without You Tonight.”

So … wish me well as I try to let the world turn without me tonight. On occasion you will still see articles and essays from me, but know that I am trying to focus my attention on my new project.

  1. Don, I will miss your interesting emails but I am excited about you writing a book. I will be very interested in how that goes for you. I have been wanting to write a book myself for years, who knows maybe you will inspire me to start one of my own. Danielle

    daily political comments that come out of DC. Somebody in addition to Fox needs to and you have been the man!
