the fig tree languisheth…

The Bible sure mentions palm trees a lot. I barely remember this part of my Lutheran elementary school education. In fact, what I remember most about my school Bible studies is the fact that my 6th grade teacher Mrs. Lange told me that I would burn in hell if I kept passing notes to David [...]

Pondering on a Summer Morning

Pondering on a Summer Morning

There are flowers on the table, coffee is brewing and the parrots are gathering in the camphor trees above my house. I know it’s the big things in life that we always remember — the births and deaths and graduations, the promotions and colossal failures and serendipitous acts of grace. But I wish we’d remember [...]

The Goddess Lounge

“Ok. So I’m on my way to The Goddess Lounge, the coffee house/knitting salon/menstrual palace that Fox News calls, ‘A man-hating elevator to hell, another example of debauched LA, a sinful hideaway for modern-day polytheists and the Hollywood types who forever confuse spiritual wholeness with liberal narcissism.’ Yeah. It’s not a good morning.” Thus begins [...]

The Parrot Whisperer

The Parrot Whisperer

Last year I had the great fortune of meeting and chatting with Mark Bittner. (Read my interview with him here.)

You know, a special [...]
