    Stuff I remember from back in the day that I felt was worth writing down and chewing on for a spell.

    How to Read a Book

    by  •  • FlashBacks • 0 Comments

    Strangely enough, I have to say that when I attended seminary, my favorite class may have had nothing to do with doing the Lord’s work. It’s not that I did not like my other classes at Golden Gate (now Gateway) Seminary. The truth is, I loved my three years at that little school, living...

    The Enclosed Courtyard of the SAAM.

    Last Sunday night when I dropped in on my folks and my Dad and I clicked back through my Facebook pictures for the last two years, when we hit the Washington D.C. photos, I was hit with a wave of emotion. Not only did we realize I had not shown all of my photos...

    Since the last few days have been about nostalgia, yesterday’s post ended up making me think about life in middle school, and what I remembered most from my mid school years. Because we moved across town when I was 9, I ended up attending junior high at Eisenhower Middle School- home of the Eisenhower...

    Earlier this week, digging some old disks out of storage led Tim to break out some old Mac SE’s from storage as well. Seeing the SE’s, I went in my garage and found and pulled out the second Mac I owned- a PowerBook 1400/CS. Digging out those old computers made think about some other...

    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...

    Ms. Thornton, Tim Fox, and Fifth Grade

    by  •  • FlashBacks, People • 0 Comments

    When I was in fifth grade, my little universe shifted quite a bit because our family made a major life change. Our parents moved us across town in Albuquerque, from an older neighborhood of smaller, simple homes and young families, to the wild frontier of a new neighborhood at the north edge of the...

    In the summer after my 4th grade year of elementary school, my parents bought a home way out north in Albuquerque (at the time) and moved us to a street that was near the edge of town. The development was new enough that the land on the south side of the main road we...

    Pages and Places, I

    by  •  • FlashBacks • 0 Comments

    It’s amazing how memories of a book that you read can become heavily associated with the place or places where you read it. I thought it’d be fun to make a short list of some of the books I’ve read that have strong ties to places and moments in my history and memory. “An...

    When I started high school, I was a kid in transition. I was growing at odd intervals. My acne ebbed and receded like waves on a beach. I was in a lot of activities, and I was pretty anonymous in all of them. And I was adrift socially (as I have often been since)....
