Finding our way to The Way one situation at a time. I don't know how great it will be, but I expect it will be interesting, and I look forward to it going on past all reason because wonder is just that way. Are you coming or not?
We are not free to choose our choices.
And our choices are limited by time and place,
age and circumstance.
Our freedom is restricted by 10,000 things.
What we want is negated by what we want,
and we have to choose between
mutually exclusive desires.
To be free is to be in denial
that changes with the tides,
and is as constant as the sea.
Letting that be
is to be free of the burden
of having to be free.
And that is as free as it gets.
I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing.
I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.

This is way more clear than “Freedom is another word for nothing left to lose”!
