• 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.

    One time we made an unconscious turn and wandered amidst the cement steles each great monolith like the other fire doors and fires escapes gray statues on a cement pond where litter floated here and there like dead fish. We did not know. “Hey, white girl” a low male voice called. It was a...

    I spent a good chunk of time on Sunday morning trying to sit back down into my research efforts on Anza. Some of the time was spent trying to read a few more pages in the Anza book, and some of the time was also spent transcribing chicken scratch notes written on a legal...

    Blackest Days

    The weird thing is I don’t remember any of it, at the end, what happened when the bottom fell out. I look back and it’s like I was drugged out or something, because it was just months of mounting fighting and ugly words and silence and deep pain mixed with numbness and aloneness at...

    I live my life in a fairly large sphere of silence, and I guess I make it that way. It’s not that I am not without noise and distraction around me, because I am usually busy doing something with the TV or a radio on nearby, feeding me music and talk. I just don’t...

    I went to the library this afternoon to check out a book I had been wanting to read for a while- “Manhood”, by Terry Crews. Terry is the muscly guy that was in Old Spice commercials a few years back. He’s also a regular actor, currently in the Fox comedy, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine’, but also...

    It’s a funny thing. You write because you want your thoughts and your ideas to be shared, to be enjoyed. You want to express your mental machinations and maybe share an insight or two on life and things going on in the world. And you create a platform- a blog- to do just that,...

    Fuzzy Humanity

    Maybe I just lack scientific creativity. Maybe I don’t understand science. Or maybe I just don’t understand the endgame of postmodern thinking. Tim let me know today that after the Whanganui River in New Zealand was granted personhood last week- with a whole sphere of legal benefits given to it as a human- several...

    Same Ole Plot. Or is it?

    Hearing this afternoon that Sports Illustrated had a new issue coming out soon with Cub’s phenom and NL MVP Kris Bryant on the cover, I visited the Barnes & Noble website to get the phone number to a store here in town in my sort-of neighborhood. I had to ask Jeff the Magazine Guy...

    It was a pretty good day today. I ate fairly cleanly for once, not diving into the candy store at work in mid-afternoon. I ate my breakfast at home before I left for work. Greg next door at Cafe Espresso gifted me a carne burrito this morning, so I ate it for lunch. And...

    I was born in Albuquerque and have spent most of my life living here. I’ve also spent time in most every weekday in the last nine years on I-25, driving north and south to and from work. It’s odd, then, that it was only a few years ago that I actually noticed the three...
