I recognize that I may be somewhat of an anomaly - one of a relatively small group of people who don't love animation. Truth is that I don't even like it too much. No interest in Comic Con, the latest HBO adult cartoons, or even The Simpsons! As a child I was never crazy for cartoons and other than taking my children to Disney and Pixar movies I've had little to no interest in most things animated. So you might imagine that it came as quite a surprise to me when I felt moved to use an animated short, in place of writing, on my blog this week! The Present has so many lessons in it's 4-minute story and for me it connects so beautifully to my website's weekly inspiration about courage, listening to the small voice within, connection, and dancing (finding joy) wherever you are. And, hey, for me it's much better than The Simpsons. Enjoy!
I had hoped to post once a week, and did for a short time. Unfortunately, my doctorate research and other obligations have taken priority over the blog. BUT, I will return soon! Some postings may be articles I've written for publication, messages I've delivered in congregational settings, or excerpts from papers written in my doctoral classes.
