risenness

Living in the awareness of the risen Jesus is not a trivial pursuit for the bored and lonely or a defense mechanism enabling us to cope with the stress and sorrow of life. It is the key that unlocks the door to grasping the meaning of existence.

I have stumbled into this blog by a randomish sort of search on Annie Dillard. I can't believe it. I didn't know anyone else in Wright County besides my husband and myself read Annie Dillard or Anne Lamott or. . .

As I'm sifting through your blog entries, I'm finding so much I love: your clear writing, your emphasis on the beauty of the everyday, your close connection with your family (esp. your grandmother).

Keep writing. I want to keep reading. :)

Thanks, Cindy! Yes, there's a few hidden hillbilly pseudo intellectual weirdos out there.:) Somehow those authors you mentioned find you instead of you finding them, though. It's a nudging thing.
I don't live in Wright county any more, though, but it's holler-echos remain and find a way out. Hope you're enjoying it.
Take care!
