About Me

I am a project manager/systems analyst by day, sporadic writer by night, a Catholic-husband-father-Red Sox fan 24/7/365.

On my old blog I described myself in this manner: A student of history, I am an amateur at satire and am prone to occasional bouts of excessive sarcasm. A seeker of Truth, this blog presents my hopefully humorous, sometimes witty view of things religious, political, and anything else that happens to cross my addled mind. But always with the goal to make you think.

After a lot of thought I’ve decided that the description still fits. I am also a die-hard member of Red Sox nation as I have been since watching my first baseball game on television, one from the 1975 World Series between the Sox and the Reds.

I am a voracious reader and am an aspiring author. Among my favorites is G.K. Chesterton and I thought it fitting, for now, if I quote him in order to wrap up this page.

In the end it will not matter to us whether we wrote well or ill; whether we fought with flails or reeds. It will matter to us greatly on what side we fought. – G.K. Chesteron: All Things Considered

  2. Hello. Thank you for posting the poem “Do not Seek Me Father.” I too was moved by this poem in the series, The World and War and will use it in my novel about the fall of Berlin in 1945. You might like to look at my website: MarkEvansAuthor.com

  3. I *love* G.K. Chesterton and aspire to be a seeker of truth as well. I was raised Protestant but have many Catholic friends (my high school boyfriend became a Dominican priest) and have many, many questions about God and for God when someday I (hopefully) meet him. Thank you for stopping by my site! I’m going to go browse yours a little more just now. 🙂

    • Ain’t GKC terrific? Thanks for stopping by Jessica. After steady blogging in 2012 I decided to take a break for awhile in 2013 to focus on some other goals. But as you can see I just can’t seem to remain quiet for long. 🙂 I’m slowly reading through your posts on “How Not to Die”. Holy smokes!

      • Yes, now that I’ve gotten into blogging, I too would find it hard to quit. I’ve never been someone who can pump out a post a day, though. 😛 Thanks for reading my story. It was pretty traumatic. But I am lucky, and God is good. It could have been so much worse.

  4. I love it!! Sarcasm, wit, the search for Truth!!! What more does a man need??!!! LOL! It was a joy to read your intro, but also your article “Same as it ever was.” I wish, I had that kind of wit. My Father-in-law had it, my wife and kids have it, but me?? I can always hope although the years are rushing by! Oh well!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I asked the Lord to send those by whom I can gain inspiration, insight, and even learn a thing or two at my age and He has been so faithful. I will be putting your site on my Links pages and I WILL be coming back and reading more. I also am an avid reader, it is something I have always loved doing. Most of what I read today, doesn’t have paper pages though!
    I do have a lot of blogs I follow, so I usually take a couple of days a week, just to catch up and since I have so many, it takes me a bit to get around, but I do. I am looking very much to reading more of what you have to say. I believe this is what bonds the Body of Christ together, our communion and sharing, not our denominational tags or titles. I have always looked for inspiration from my brothers and sisters of all Faith-based denominations and organizations.
    Until later, God bless you continually and richly as you continue to serve (minister) to the Lord and to all whom the Lord brings your way!!

    • Again, thank you for your kind comments. There is much wisdom in what you say, especially pertaining to the bonding of the Body of Christ together. May God bless you, too, and thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet (somewhere between the supply closet and the furnace room). 🙂

  5. Hi Jeff,

    I’ve been reading for some time now, and I must say, you are my favourite blogger. I appreciate your careful thinking and the insights you share each week. Thanks so much!
