What Does Love Cost? Send this letter to someone you love!

Recently, my wife and I were separated by some few hundred miles as she remained at home in the rice fields of Cambodia with her large family, while I returned to my work at Assumption University of Thailand. Her village has no public utilities, and no Internet connection, so I wrote her an email... Sign in to see full entry.

A Movie Maker Raised in the 13th Century?

Godfrey Reggio and I are old friends, and we were last together in New York about 1970. He was not yet a film maker, but was a veteran public figure around Santa Fe and New Mexico in general, a political gadfly and visionary, a youth worker in the Barrios, and generally an extraordinary individual....

I Survived Betsy: Katrina and Betsy as seen from a Cambodian village

I was teaching in New Orleans when Hurricane Betsy hit. Our brand new modern school had been built on supports at least 48 inches off the asphalted swampland (called "fill") in Metairie. The airspace was there to prevent the buildup of swamp gas (methane and hydrogen sulfide) in the school's... Sign in to see full entry.

Message to Michael, with great Appreciation

Dear Michael, You have served your country, you have kept your word, and you are in some doubt about your religious identity. As a human being, as an American, as a deeply devout spiritual person, a person who loves God and humanity, I thank you for doing your absolute best as a soldier, a writer, a...

I Knocked, and It Opened, I Went In, and Got to Work

Life is not about retiring, having no responsibilities, and dying so you can go to your country club up there. Most of the "heaven" jokes seem to be gentle reminders of that. Well, at the edge of 70, I'm not planning to retire again, ever. I did it twice, and started taking Social Security eight... Sign in to see full entry.

A bit of science: http://getyourhandsonscience.com is on the Web!get

It's a great day for me, because getyourhandsonscience.com is finally on the Web. I know it's no big deal; because I have not been able to put up more than one page today, but it's underway, and I hope you'll join me there! TRAWIMAN Sign in to see full entry.

My old prayers are coming back to me at the door to age 70

Catholic school from grade 2 through the M.A. and 14 years as a member of the Christian Brothers order (LaSalle Brothers) was enough to choke somebody to death on ritual, repetitive prayer like the rosary, the "office" (recital of psalms at certain hours) and the long litanies and creeds and so on....

A Bit of Science Education and How to Catch People's Attention with Things

On my Education blog (Hanzon Science), I laid out the ten principles I think are essential to a philosophy of education. This is important for religious people, too, since much of religion is involved in passing on beliefs and values through some sort of education, mostly parent to child, and by...

My Skeptical Friend's Profound Question

I have a skeptical friend who gets in touch with me occasionally and I'm going to post his questions in today's edition of this blog to see if he gets any responses. He is a good-hearted fellow, but can't commit himself to Christianity the way he sees it. If you have any way to explain what he says,... Sign in to see full entry.

God is laughing

I'm trying to learn to put things in a nice template format so my blog will look special, but though I work hard, study hard, and try to align myself with God's creative power, I seem unable to "color within the lines" as my second grade teacher said. Or, as a less inhibited person would say, "You... Sign in to see full entry.
