This would be Webster's definition.
Mine would be described more as...impractical or foolish.
Otherwise known as CRAZY.
But here I am...BLOGGING.
I was given some advice this past weekend about writing. Quite simply said..blogging is key.
I spent the weekend at a CS Lewis retreat . I learned much about this exemplary man of God. Even more about myself.
When i first arrived, I started to realize the intellect that was there. Sweat seemed to start exuding from every pore in my body. I ran back to my room, and decided it was better to stay confined to the safety of my room, concealing myself from those who surely would wonder why I bothered to come.
I journaled of all the reasons why I should leave immediately. Screwtape was meddling. I decided this was doing me no good, and decided to be courageous. I really did not want to do it but strangely thought of Dory in the movie Finding Nemo..."just keep swimming swimming."
Yep, I was with the big sharks now!
I walked down the sidewalk and saw someone taking a picture. Ok, safe. I 'll say hello. She was so pleasant. We walked in together and I met many others...the list grew all weekend. These CS Lewis fans became fast and close friends.
