I want to spend the rest of this afternoon working on my new Bell Mountain book, Behold! And I wonder when I’m going to get some amazon customer reviews of No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever.
Meanwhile, I’m several thousand views down from my total for July of 2019, which is Verizon’s fault, internet outage and all. I wonder when the views will come back to where they were. Nothing I can do about it but to keep on working.
I have no idea where Behold! is going. God hasn’t shown it to me yet. I think (but I don’t know!) that the distant past and the distant future are going to clash somewhere.
Oh, for a glass of golden wine from Durmurot! Or a nip of stout Ninneburky ale.
I’m sorry. But this month is shot and I’m sitting here staring at the keyboard and the screen and just can’t seem to write anything. I’m even having trouble writing this.
My wife insists I take the afternoon off. Might as well try it.
Please, please feel entirely free to start profound, witty, and exciting conversations wherever you have room to leave a comment. That way I can say we’re having an experiment to see if readers can write the blog
I hope I can return and get to work in a couple of hours. Well, I pray I can, at least.
Well, I’ve posted Joe Collidge’s timeless essay, and supposedly Verizon is working on fixing the outage at their central office–and I’ve loaded a cat video for this evening.
We’re still getting bounced out of internet access, again and again; but now the bounce-outs seem to be getting much shorter. Maybe by tomorrow it’ll all be back to normal. As in “We’ve got ’em now, boys!” said General Custer.
Thanks to all of you who’ve stuck with us throughout this time of intense frustration. And a special thanks to Jill at Chalcedon HQ for posting another update yesterday.
I just want to say this before I go back outside to try to write a little more book before it rains.
I really missed you guys!
If I do say so myself, we have more than just a blog. It’s a fellowship. We pray for each other, amuse each other, bat around ideas together–and I found it hard, not to be able to do those things.
The technician who came here this morning said our system is working just fine, there’s nothing wrong with it, no reason for it not to keep on functioning as it should. Then again, he couldn’t find any reason why it stopped functioning for two weeks, getting a bit worse every day and totally kicking the bucket early Wednesday morning. He searched, but couldn’t find. I don’t hold it against.
Anyway, O friends and readers, I really missed your company.
