• About Bruce

    A web programmer by day, I somehow still spend a lot of time thinking about relationships, God, and the significance of grace and love in daily events. I am old school in the sense that I believe in the reality of sin, and in the need of each human heart for deliverance to the Divine. I am one of those who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that you can find most answers to life's pressing issues in Him and His Word, the Bible. I ain't perfect, and a lot of the time I ain't good, but by God's grace and kindness, I am forgiven and free.

    After going to Moab early this summer to visit Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, I told myself I needed to go see some of the other amazing Southwest sites I’d long heard about but put off visiting. As the summer rolled on, a cheery weekend day in August gave me enough incentive to day...

    Tonight after work, I met Tim Ung, my old friend from Sagebrush Highland Church, and another friend- Mike Smith, who was also part of the old kids area morning set-up crew back when the church met at Highland High- for dinner at Mannie’s on Central. It was great to see Tim for a bit...

    The Power of Johnny Bear

    I finished a volume of Steinbeck’s early short stories yesterday, The Long Valley, and as usual, was overwhelmed at his careful development and delivery of each story (highly recommend!). I am always stuck in the giant empty room of my mind when it comes to actually thinking of topics. His stories are rich in...

    It was fairly impromptu, but this morning my Mom, Dad and I hopped in a car and headed out of Albuquerque around 8 AM to go visit the Bosque Del Apache Wildlife Refuge south of Socorro, NM. Bosque Del Apache is famous for the amazing number of waterfowl- cranes, ducks, and geese- that congregate...

    How To Write It

    There will be a drove of books coming out in the next year or so on them, on the year, on the accomplishment, on its significance. Evidently, Sports Illustrated writer Tom Verducci already has one ready to come out in early 2017. I mean, how does a story about the 2016 Cubs not get...

    A Tipping Week

    For the record, the national elections were this last Tuesday, and with the surprising surge of Trump driving into the presidency, the nation and the world remains in shock today. Except for the Dow Jones Industrial, which has also surged this week after election night jitters. I’m amazed at some of the bizarro stuff...

    For the record, I was at my parent’s house to see the game of the season, and of the century. The funny thing is, I had told my cousin I would make sure to wear my Cub’s hat for the two remaining games after Sunday’s win because when I took it off for a...

    When I awoke at 3:30 AM this morning, it was early to get myself ready for a 10+ hour drive to see family in Kansas this weekend. It would be a well-desired getaway from a few exceptionally heavy work weeks, I thought. The drive time out would be time to think a little, to...

    Nice

    All I remember is climbing a tightly enclosed wood-walled staircase at one end of the building up a few floors, and then on the third floor at near the middle of the landing was a door and behind it was a room with two beds that accommodated the pitch of the roof so that...
