What I am is what I am...

Back when my daughters were in high school there was a totally rockin' song by Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians:  What I Am.  Damn, if I STILL don't love that song...

This tune came back to me earlier today as I was cleaning up my blog site. You know, over time some sites simply  go dormant while others become boring, right?  So, I've started to weed out those that are either stagnant or just dead in one way or another and replace them with others that grab me right now. Like Edie sings, that's just "what I am!" Let me call your attention to a few others that are I currently find fascinating.

+ My wife, Dianne, turned me on to: Jamie the Very Worst Missionary - a totally insightful blog about one woman's incarnational work in Costa Rica.  Having been in Costa Rica myself - and digging her theology - I look forward to where she's going to take us.  Check it out @

+ My daughter does some work here - a pretty interesting group of folk - and I have come to value the monthly on-line newsletter of the North  East Organic Farmers Association @

+ Then there is the Good Heart @ http://thegoodheart.blogspot.com/ an often insightful reflection on things that are important to me.

Finally, I am aware that so much of the news in the USA is filtered through the perspective and need of corporate profit making that sometimes I need a different blast of reality.  Here are three sits that make it happen for me:

+ The Independent Media Center (my journalist/organizer/organic farmer daughter turned me onto this when she was at UMASS):  http://www.indymedia.org/en/index.shtml

+ The network former VP Al Gore works on is another great resource for another pespective @ http://current.com/

+ And let's not forget the ever credible and always fascinating work of Al Jazeera @ http://english.aljazeera.net/watch_now/

Better close now... with something from Radiohead, yeah?
