The World Made Otherwise

Last Week

So, last week didn't go according to plan.  The plan had been for Katie, Stephen, and I to camp and hike in Glacier National Park, but that trip fell through at the last minute (and I was even packed for it) due to changes in the Glacier entry system since we had planned the trip and had been unaware of the changes.  Thank goodness I looked before we began the long drive up there.

Anyway, I decided to add a couple of days to my high school reunion trip and visit some friends in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  The entire weekend was a blast, I had so much fun.

Back in Omaha last week with the heat and change of plans, I had a rather low key few days.  Mostly catching up on household chores, napping, and reading.  I finished Timothy Gorringe's expansive theology book The World Made Otherwise.  He writes about the resilience needed for us to live well as the climate changes, what values and practices must we embody.

Robyn and I have mostly finished gathering what we need for our upcoming Boundary Waters trip.

Also last week I broke the sabbatical somewhat to prepare and deliver a eulogy for Bob Vassell's funeral service.

Not sure what I will work on this week.  There are some home projects I could begin, especially since it's not going to be as hot.  Always more reading to do.  Hopefully I can get some more writing done as well.
