Organized Chaos

Okay, I admit it. I am forever disheveled. I try to organize only to find a horrible mess a few hours after tidying up. What makes some of us so coherent and capable of keeping ourselves together, while others are in a constant state of flux? God certainly did not make a mess. He is…

Ocean of Ideas

It has been an extraordinary time of ideas.  I cannot seem to keep up with the numerous configurations popping into my mind at all hours of the day and night.  I should be happy, but instead I am feeling run down and exhausted by the sheer number of little pieces of paper floating around my…
