The Joys of Living in Color


I grew up in New Jersey where the four seasons of the years are each distinct and the fall is amazingly colorful. In some ways I feel my life is enriched for having so many likes and experiences that represent a broad list of the beautiful (and not so beautiful) things of life: I enjoy teaching kids how to play drums; I enjoy reading philosophy; my niece and nephew call me "The Claw" because I hunt them down in the pool; I love tennis and chess; I love learning languages, although I struggle with Hebrew; I'm the happiest man next to my wife and children; I've been pained by the suffering among some of the children of D.R.; seen the poverty and longings of the Cuban people; love the romance of Quebec City; climbed Chichen Itza , love to study and teach La Biblia . . . and so much more.

I'm a blessed man.

Many would call me a generalist because of the many likes and interests I possess. This is why I've called my blog "Musings 'de muchos colores' (of many colors)." Here are some of the things I will probably be writing about:
* Spiritual issues
* Theological topics and questions I ponder
* My thoughts on trips to Cuba
* Some family stuff
* What I'm learning from my readings
* What I'm learning from others
* Personal experiences
* ¿Quien sabe qué más? (who knows what else?)

I'll be writing mostly Monday-Thursday of each week. Please feel free to respond to any of my posts at any time.
Por Su gracia y fidelidad . . .
