Again in 2014, I'll attempt to post something sensible on an almost daily basis.
Confession: I do this mainly for my own benefit.
I try to read as widely as I have the time on a daily basis. Admittedly, much of what I read connects to my work and concerns related to poverty, economics, neighborhood revitalization and life in hard, inner city neighborhoods and communities here in Dallas and across the nation.
There is something about the plan, the need, the compulsion to write daily that keeps me focused and as "on track" as I can remain. I find that when I fail to write, I feel scattered, dislocated and without clarity or discipline.
So, I write to work and to stay at thoughts having to do with life and poverty and faith and labor and children and homeless friends and family.
Now, enough of the personal stuff.
Bring on 2014! And, agree or disagree, please know that your comments make this page much more helpful than it could ever be without them.
I'll look for you here.
R.I.P. and Happy Birthday, Mom. You'll never be forgotten.
