Yes, yes, yes. I have neglected my duties as the world’s most sought-after blogger (right). I haven’t posted in quite a while, but I have all the excuses in the world, especially the fact that we are a mere week away from final exams here at beautiful Southwestern Adventist University. I have been kept busy keeping my students busy. But that’s about to change, and soon.
While working on classes, I have simultaneously been working with Celeste Perrino-Walker on our new team project, the Christian suspense novel, Salome’s Charger. It’s turning out to be a pretty good book, and–wait for it–one of the best I’ve ever written. Yes, I know you’ve heard that one before. But it’s sort of like how parents feel when their next child is born. Each of them is beautiful; each of them is unique. I will try to include a segment or two here in days to come.
In the meantime, my saga with the broken MacBook Pro continues. As I speak, I am writing this on a loaner PC from our IT department. The few days of repair turned into a week, which turned into two weeks. Last I heard, my colleague Mike Agee went by IT and they had it torn up once again. When he asked about it, the IT guy grumbled: “This is the eighth time I’ve had this open.” So it’s not looking good.
And in the meantime, meantime, it’s been raining frogs and catfish here. Last night we had a storm front come through with 80 mile per hour winds. We didn’t get the golf-ball sized hail they were talking about, but we did get torrents of rain. After one of these deluges, it’s always funny to hear them say, “We’re still in drought conditions.” Face it, weathermen. This is Texas. We’ve always been in drought conditions.
I just finished reading another book, so I will try to post a review here sometime this weekend. In any case, stay in touch and I’ll try to do the same. Blessings.
