Packing My Bags, Again

It's hard to believe that I've been back to Mississippi for two weeks! Time really raced by.

Friday the 13th (whooooo) at 2:20pm, Georgia will be two weeks old. 48 hours after that, I'll be on the ground in Maryland.

Getting to see friends and family while here has been refreshing and a bit tough. Flying in and out for a weekend is no time to miss the people or the place. Staying home with Kim, lovin' on a new baby, and working from home for two weeks...tends to make one reflective. I still know that God's opened some remarkable doors to take us to DC. And I still know that I love the South! ;)

From here on, the waters get a little muddier. God knows when the house will sell and where we will live and how the drive from here to DC will be...I just wish that I knew! ;)

But even when that day comes, we forged too many friendships and I have too many family members to not return often to the Magnolia State. Besides, I'll be expecting many of you to be touring DC with us soon!

More to come...

I Don't Get Lent

At the risk of offending or disappointing some people...I just don't get Ash Wednesday or Lent. Every year, nearly a week before Ash Wednesday, the posts start coming in about what people are considering giving up for Lent. The list is rather diverse. From coffee, sodas, and candy to social media, TV, and video games. I often wonder if people are just trying to outdo their friends. "Hey, look at what I'm giving up for 40 days! Bet you couldn't do that! But I can cuz I'm doing it for..." And that's when I my mind ponders...why are these people giving up stuff for 40 days? Is it for themselves? For God? For their church? All the above?

Die Rush Limbaugh!

On the Eve of New Year's Eve, Rush Limbaugh is rushed to a Hawaii hospital with chest pains. News reports mention his condition as "serious" but little information is available. Hours later, it's reported that he's "resting comfortably" at the hospital. The hours in between paint a pathetic picture of our country: New York Daily News described Limbaugh as a "radio loudmouth" and a "right-wing talk show host." The article also mentions that Rush's "nemesis" President Obama and "target of Limbaugh's bile" Nancy Pelosi were also vacationing in Hawaii this week.

Grateful During Unemployment

Two years have passed since I last scribed in this blog. Much life has transpired during that time. Too much to really unpack here. Then, I was a few months into a new public sector role with the City of Baltimore and starting to pursue the dream of rebooting the paranormal broadcast TV news series I co-created with Darren Dedo called "Unexplained" as a YouTube docu-series "Unexplained Cases."  Today, I am unemployed and "Unexplained Cases" has grown but has yet to generate revenue.  In July, I was dismissed from both my part-time weekend job at Grace Community Church and my City of Baltimore job. I've never had the pleasure of being released from two jobs in a month. Technically, I was released in June from Grace and my separation date was July 3. My last day of work at Baltimore was July 23 and my separation date was September 23. Unless one has been through an extended period of unemployment, one cannot understand the emotions that are stirred. For
