It's a little intimidating to stare at a blank blog page after, oh, more than two years since last posting. I have excuses and reasons for my long absense, of course, but I won't bother you with those. They aren't that good anyway.
Lots of things in my life are the just like they were in 2010. I still live in Omaha, in the same apartment. I'm still a priest at the same church. I still read a lot, and still have only about five good recipes in my cookbook. I still feel like I just moved here.
A recent gig as a guest writer for my friend Jara's blog, The Thirty Girl, made me realize how much I miss having a room of my own on the Internet. So, I thought I would revive this place and give it a bit of a makeover. What do you think of the new design? Maybe my next post will be about that beautiful bison up there.
