I write, quilt, draw, and try anything vaguely creative to connect people to community, and concepts to action.
Why a blog?
Because I find myself ‘in-between’
. caring for kids and caring for parents
. science and religion and politics…Can they ever work together?
. career and vocation and stay-at-home-parents and carers
. being available and staying focused
…and I spend a lot of time wondering about it, and find it helpful to write out my thoughts.
I sit on the fence a lot of the time. It’s not usually a very comfortable place to sit. But hey, it gives me a great opportunity to experience both sides of the same sandwich and a lot of the stuff in the middle that keeps life interesting.
16 years ago, I accidentally discovered that others wonder about the same things – when they began to read my articles in ‘The Lutheran’, the national magazine of the the Lutheran Church of Australia. It’s because of the readers’ response that I’ve begun this blog.
Stay a while – even if it’s just long enough for a new taste or a different perspective.
And let me know what you think.
