“I don’t do deep thoughts,” I said to him after we’d been dating for just a few weeks. I don’t recollect the exact topic he had raised – it may have been religion or philosophy or quantum physics – but I clearly recall my need to set the record straight. This man with the shock of unruly hair and the quiet, kind demeanor seemed fond of big, open-ended questions. And thus I felt compelled to state my case from the start: topics that pushed at the boundaries or raised questions I couldn’t begin to answer – from God to existentialism to string theory – were taboo.
…I’m writing over at Wendy Paine Miller’s place today. When I put out the plea a couple of weeks ago for platform-building support, Wendy emailed me right away to ask if I’d like to guest post at her place. That’s just the way she is: gracious, generous, kind and encouraging. Please hop over to read about writing toward the questions…and then stay awhile at Wendy’s. You’ll fall in love with her words…and with Wendy herself!
