Sometimes it takes a long time for things to come together. Take this blog. It began three years ago when I decided I wanted a place where I could put my thoughts about the Jonah project. I've long held that Jonah's prayer is under-used and unappreciated. I've also been intrigued with the character of Jonah. He epitomizes the reluctant hero. For many years I've entertained the thought of doing an icon of Jonah but seemed to have trouble getting started. Perhaps it's because I needed to have a deeper understanding of his character before I started.
Lents have come and gone and the project has remained stagnant. So what's the problem? Perhaps I've been missing pieces of the puzzle. Tonight I realized that Jonah is probably the archtype for the reluctant caregiver and instead of creating a separate site to write about my experiences as a caregiver, the Jonah project would be the perfect repository. All I have to do is grab the domain name and direct folks to that particular category. Or I can keep them here and use a feed for the caregiver blog. The minute I had that realization my mood changed--usually a good indicator.
