The Latest Update

Lots has been going on, but even more is to come. Isn’t that, in a nutshell, everyone’s life? That said, we’re finally beginning to get settled into a rough semblance of normalcy.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading of late. I read George Barna’s “Revolution” which was very informative. I read David Koenig’s “Mouse Under Glass” and am almost through his “Mouse Tales: A Behind-The-Ears Look At Disneyland,” both of which have been enlightening. I’m also part-way through Dave Duncan’s final Kings Blades novel, “Jaguar Knights,” which is just as entertaining as the previous five.

I’m writing steadily again, making progress on my angels and demons contemporary fantasy as well as quickly bringing to a close my long-gestating “Zooming Through Life” nonfiction piece.

In April, Lori and I took Melody to Disneyland for her birthday. Then we took her again in May for my birthday. This time, Melody finally “got it.” She met Snow White and she drove an Autopia car and she road the train and went on Roger Rabbit’s Cartoon Spin. She loved it and asked to go again frequently the following day. Lori and I have come to the decision that the next trip should be just us so we’ll leave Melody with either Lori’s mom or mine and hit the park again in June (right before the summer rush hits) and we’ll ride all of the things that we don’t take Melody on.

Then there’s the secret venture that has Lori and I very excited. We’ve been working toward it for many years, both of us in some ways even before we met. It’s something that would allow the both of us to operate in the gifts and callings that God’s given us and the idea of it is exciting. And the excitement is contagious.

But I can’t say any more about it at this time. Perhaps next time.

Until then.
