Here's a little update on what's brewing behind the scenes at Sojourner's Song. The journey continues...
1. I realize that my posts are growing stealthily longer, and I'm not altogether sure what to do about it. I don't necessarily want to burden my readers with such ponderous and unwieldy content ("In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin"), but one must balance the virtue of brevity against the sophistry of reductionism. It may be inevitable, as this blog gradually becomes braver, that the words will fall thicker and faster; like the sparks that flew from the forge as the sword that was broken was remade.
2. Contrary to my usual laments about "coming up with content," I currently have a backlog of waiting posts threatening to outgrow a post-it note. (I realize that's not a lot, but it's a lot for me.) There are many things brewing and stirring within, and I look forward to sharing some of them that admit sharing during the coming months.
3. My secondary blog, formerly known as Green Coffee, remains active and has recently undergone a "re-vision" and received a new name, in order to more accurately reflect the character I wish it to have. The changes may seem small, but I am much happier with the new direction and hope you will find it all the more stimulating and provocative. In a sense, Green Coffee was my attempt to break some of my own molds - I thought I needed a place to be shallow and silly. It seems that for good or ill I remain committed, in the main, to the serious and cerebral, and I have resolved to embrace this restraint, which is not wholly without virtue. For it is still desired that young men be sober, however culturally peculiar that may be.
As always, thanks for reading. God bless all of you.
