Yaya is here all week. Imagine, for a moment, that you wake up one morning to find that a circus has invaded your house — it’s noisy, chaotic, extremely messy, and yet you can’t help but enjoy yourself. That’s what Yaya visits are like. I feel like having her here for a week will mean something for my frequency of posting, but I’m not sure what. Depending on how it goes I’ll either be updating like five times a day or will find myself barely able to dash out one post that simply reads, “Help! Chaos!”
Speaking of not being able to write coherent posts, I spent all my free time yesterday writing something, only to realize upon re-reading it that I didn’t even know what my own point was. I almost published it anyway just because I was mad that I spent so much time on it, then I remembered that other people can actually see those words that show up on the screen after I hit Publish. Maybe one of these days I’ll borrow Veronica’s idea and write up a list of posts that I spared you all from having to see.
Anyway, here are some announcements I’ve been meaning to make:
- Author seeking interviewees: Author David Seidman is writing a book about teenaged atheists. One of his chapters includes advice for teenagers who come to faith after being atheists, and for that chapter he would like to interview teenage ex-atheists and ex-agnostics. If you fit that description he’d love to talk to you. You can contact him at davidseidman |at| earthlink |dot| net.
- Dappled Things: After seeing my recent post about finally getting poetry, Bernardo Aparicio emailed me to introduce me to his Catholic literary magazine, Dappled Things. I enjoyed reading through the current issue so I wanted to pass on the link in case anyone else is interested in checking it out.
- Prayers to the Holy Spirit: A nine-day series of prayers (“novena”) to the Holy Spirit starts this Friday. Tausign is inviting others — particularly seekers and those who feel lukewarm in their faith — to join him in doing the novena, and each day he will post reflections and invite discussion. You can find the posts here. I think this is a great idea. I’m in!
