Withdrawal. I'm aching for the weird that I left in a trail of exhaust just 48 hours ago. This week my word-loving, big faith, and question-everything kind of weird was in good company. Life gets pretty lonely if we don't connect with like-minded others. Having pulled onto the interstate to head back home to my post-conference reality, I sensed that I was missing the peculiar already. Yearning even...
...For another dinner with the man who's immersed himself in literature for over sixty years, sharing hard, beautiful tales of marriage, instead of bragging about his career...
For conversations about plot lines, outlines, and sci-fi that morphed into a theology conversation within a five-minute span...
For the men and women settled deep into well-worn couches, all smiles through the exhaustion, having chosen friendship over sleep...
For earnest, hopeful prayers and lyrics sung at grateful volume...
For tears of joy over others' success because it felt like our own...
For creative abundance, powerful messages, and for people who can be trusted to cast them fearlessly into the world...
And for the emotionally wealthy, willing to bare their souls and risk judgment for the benefit of readers.
It's your turn. What makes you come alive? Who makes you feel "at home," just the way you are?
Tell us all about it!
"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light..." 1 Peter 2:9
Loving all your best kinds of weird,
