It strikes me that I have used this blog to write more about cultural connections to religion and spirituality (and in particular, those that magnify doubt and dissent) than about my own personal experiences.
I guess this has something to do with my own comfort level, with a desire not to sound fake or deliver answers that sound easy or trite. I wrote more in this vein for the book manuscript, and it was dang hard!
Maybe in time, I'll find the inspiration to take my posts in a different direction. Or maybe that's not what this blog is supposed to be about at all.
