Mercer Street

I turn and my eye is caught.
A corridor of skyscrapers.
Roadways teaming with vehicles.

Human after human walking,
strutting,
shuffling,
moving by.

And the sunset.
Gently caressing the peaks,
Of the buildings.
Filling the spaces with a purple hue.

Casting a golden shimmer.
A shimmer that lights up the faces,
Of each being we pass.

Blogging Challenge for 2011

One of my goals for 2011 and for my time in seminary is to put my thoughts and reflections in written form and out in the world. One of the ways I am choosing to do that is by challenging myself to blog weekly throughout 2011.

I’m going to join theĀ  The Weekly Post challengeĀ and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals.

I’m looking forward to being part of the conversations and connections that are sure to come.

Here’s to 2011!

Why this blog?

January 24th 2011 I will be starting the Masters of Divinity program at Earlham School of Religion and working on my Swedenborgian Certificate with the Swedenborgian House of Studies. I’m looking ahead with joy and anticipation, thinking about the classes, conversations and world-expanding experiences I will have.

One of my goals is to discipline and encourage myself to reflect on and share the gems that I receive during this process. My intention is to blog on a regular basis and share some reflections with others and have conversations with others who are interested in the topics.

I may post occasionally in the next few months, and then come January you can expect to see regular postings.
