So what is this going to be? A little bit of everything I think. Maybe that's it. What I'm thinking. What I'm believing. I hope what I'm knowing. And why would anyone care what I think I know? There's no reason in the world that you should. But then why are you here? Cuz you have to be somewhere I suppose. I've never been here before. I may not be back. I might get too busy to care; time is short. That's fine. Nobody can deal with it all at once. There is a lot to deal with.

I try not to take myself too seriously, but I know I have far too much. So I'm trying to learn how to laugh again, as I had forgotted for a while there. Also I'm relearning to enjoy life; you know, like when we were kids. The biggest challenge ahead is learning how to love God with all my heart, and soul, and mind, and strength. This one is not really that hard when you know the truth. But along with it comes learning to love others as I love myself, and that one is, as they say, "a horse of a whole different color." I think I need to learn to love myself a little more, but the problem may be that I know all these facts about me. Sometimes the facts are simply wrong or they are just stuck in the past. I'm trying to get my facts to line up with the truth. As someone once asked a great man, "what is truth?" If he had only known.

Awesome Autumn!

I try not to use the word "awesome" as much as is popular these days. A friend of mine is always saying, "that was awesome." It was actually just a joke I had told; okay it was a very good joke, but nothing more. I know that our use of language is always changing, so I try to remember not to get too "uptight" about the things I see or hear. "Awesome" is one of the few words left, however which I know, that describes things which can make me feel reverence, fear, inspiration, wonder, astonishment, or admiration. Awesome things can take me aback, or leave me thunderstruck.

Thus I try to leave the word "awesome" for very special occasions. (I don't usually say "thus" either, but saying "awesome" makes me feel biblical.) Also I know that many people feel as I do, in that the "fall" of the year is the best time of year. After all it's harvest time. It's my favorite time. So let me say, "plentiful harvest to all, and to all, have an awesome autumn!"

I am glad that I inspire you. I usually try to make the best out of any weather condition. But, the fall is my favorite time of the year to hike.

Scott, how far do you hike? Do you do the camping thing?

I use to go to the state parks in Ohio and Kentucky, there I would hike five or ten miles, just depended on who went with me. If I hike in the forest behind my house, the trail stretches for ten miles. I haven't been camping since 2000.

Scott, how I envy you having the woods behind your house. That is too cool. See you around, buddy.
