Now that my desk is clear (and the floor around it) I'm on to the NEXT THING, or rather the next things. Mary deTurris Poust's family creates a summer bucket list, things large and small that they want to do before summer is out. I've got a bucket load of lists. HPublish Postouse projects. Course prep. Family fun. Writing. Self-care.
I'm very much looking forward the summer's mix of writing projects. I'm still writing my ongoing column for the Standard and Times and contributing another set of Thesis columns to Nature Chemistry. New projects include a column called Spiritual Fitness for the Philadelphia Archdiocese's new monthly magazine (launching in September) Phaith.
I'm also writing occasionally for another new project, Give Us This Day from Liturgical Press. I just got the first issue in the mail (August) - my first piece is in the October issue. It has the daily readings, along with reflections from a wide variety of writers from the hallowed (St. Augustine) to the quotidian (me?).
And…I'm writing a short book for Liguori Press — on what happens when you walk out of the confessional, how do you live into/out of your penance.
