our week at the beach is almost done. we head home tomorrow evening. like all good vacations, this one went by too fast. and yet, like most other times, i am certainly ready to resume life. my finger is doing better everyday, i have been eating like a pig, and i have alot of work waiting for me next week.
I read Common Grounds over the past few days. It was a good read. I thought that the dialogue was a bit “clunky” at times, though i hesitate to use that word because it makes it seem as if the dialogue got in the way, which it didn’t. only that i think the characters were often not talking like real folks do, but it a sense it helped move the conversations along and kept the book from being 700 pages. I got the sense that every dialogue, character trait, and piece of information had a point, and that kept me turning the pages. I was interested and involved from cover to cover, and actually walked away from the book having felt like i learned a little. So in the end i am very happy that i read it. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a different angle on sharing their faith, defending their faith, or exploring faith.
i can’t tell you how excited i am for the NFL to start tonight…well, i guess i just did. bring it on.
my picks for week 1 will be coming soon…
