I’m Not Here

I’m not inside your computer.

I’m not in cyber space.

I’m not here.

I’m in the mountains with the whole family.

So no blog. Just a quote, a book, and a song.

The QUOTE Peri just read to me:

“I don’t think it is enough appreciated how much an outdoor book the Bible is. It is a hypaethral book, such as Thoreau talked about — a book open to the sky. It is best read and understood outdoors, and the farther outdoors the better.” -Wendell Berry

The BOOK I’ll be reading on vacation:

Brendan: A Novel
Frederick Buechner

A historical fiction exploring the Celtic Christianity of 6th century Ireland.

“An artistic triumph to rival the award-winning Godric and Buechner’s other outstanding works.” -Publishers Weekly

Christianity doesn’t have a more gifted writer than dear Mr. Buechner. The first Buechner novel you should read is Son of Laughter.

(If I finish Brendan, I’ll read The Memory of Old Jack by Wendell Berry.)

The SONG I’m listening to right now:

I’m Not There
Bob Dylan

Feel free to talk among yourselves.

I’m not here…I’m gone.
