From July 1 through November 8, I believe I posted at least one blog post everyday. It was the longest run I've ever done of daily blog posting. It was a good exercise, I think, because it forced me to say what was on my mind rather than writing posts that were more like articles. Blogging in that mode serves as a form of catharsis and deconstruction of the day. I played with some creative ideas on days that I didn't have anything in particular I wanted to post about. It was good.
Unfortunately, on November 9, I forgot to post, somehow. I'm not sure how — I thought I had, but if I did, the post was lost in cyberspace. And, since the record was already ended, I figured I might as well take another day off yesterday. But, I'm back now. Perhaps if I get time tomorrow, I'll verify I really did post all of the rest of the days.
Incidentally: I'm really upset with the late theologian Francis Schaeffer. I've never read any of his works, and tonight I ran into one of them cheap on Amazon, so I used “Look inside” to read some of it. In the small part I saw, he labeled Karl Barth, T.S. Eliot and Soren Kierkegaard as part of those who have taken society below “the line of despair.” From the reviews, it sounds like he views Thomas Aquinas as part of the problem of creating this “line of despair” as well. What in the world would give him such an idiotic idea?
