Your Narthex or Mine?

In my humble opinion, matter is not generative. Only spirit is truly generative. Therefore form is not terribly interesting or compelling of itself. I like the term oikumene because it seems to head towards the search for what is true and living in the houses of worship of the world. I am compulsive in my dedication to knowledge of my creator. I am very broad in my willingness to taste (and possibly see) from any source where goodwill is evident.

stats (no link here)

I just found the stats section of the settings for my blog.

I have had 778 people stumble on this writing.  That's something to think about.

778 is a whole bunch of people.  Even if the 5 people whom I have alerted (1.5 years ago) came back a few times... there are still rather a large number of people in the world who have now looked at this.

still in fits and starts phase but not quite inert...

I've initiated another page/blog over on Salon.com.

lately the idea of just writing a book presents itself.  I've read a couple of books on book proposals and have spoken briefly with an acquaintance who wrote a book and found a publisher.  His main suggestion was just to write every day without exception for a certain amount of time or pages.  This makes a lot of sense since I've managed to not write regularly for a whole year and one half now.

Several days ago I was contemplating the improbability of book writing next to the ongoing impulse to write.  I thought this is like trying to give birth to a child while putting a ship (or the child) in a bottle.  It's like two conflicting impulses together.
