Last Day of June

You'd think I'd have better things to do than to post old cartoons mocking students...
but you'd apparently be wrong.


Throwback Sunday

Looking through old notebooks, I found this and realized I hadn't posted it before. 
I tell people how, when I was in seminary, I gave up on taking "regular notes" after the first semester, and just drew cartoons in class. Usually, that's followed up with something to the effect that, when I look at the cartoons, I get a larger sense of what was happening in class, what the relevant theological point was, or something to that effect.

Not with this cartoon, though. I just like Bowie.


Samstag - with no sermon tomorrow!

At long last, a Saturday that I can more or less enjoy!

The phrase in the punchline, by the way, was a "googlewhack," and completely unintentional. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't stealing a phrase from George Herbert Mead, or someone like that.

Did I mention that I was a hospice chaplain?



I'm not sure which is more absurd, my wife learning German, or her somehow turning it into a contest. I suppose I need to start soon, but talk about slow and steady...

Also, things at the hospice are coming along, but not quite what I'd hoped for. Maybe next week will be better.


Thursday night

...which is kind of like Friday night around here.

Anyhow, I think Waldo is the ultimate 5 with a 4 wing, dressing in a unique fashion and yet somehow able to get lost in a crowd.

Mr. Miro is a fan.


Born to be... Part 8

I'm assuming this is the final cartoon in this series.
The sermon will have to wait for another day, but hopefully soon.


Born to be... penultimate post

Just thought I'd let you know, this can't go on forever.
I'm not sure that "wiled" is a word, but I like thinking of Mai as a sort of Wile E. Coyote. Also, "xyled" isn't a word, and no one complained about that yet.

Married life is going well: yesterday we had a good "day off," of sorts. Both of us preach this week, so today is more sermon writing and less driving around and hanging out watching "Sherlock."

I'll post my sermon when I'm finished with it, I think it will be good.


Born to be... part 7

I still don't feel entirely settled (just starting a new job, still unpacking in a new house...) - but I can see it coming along, slowly. I haven't had that feeling in years, and it's really nice.



 I was looking for something important in my stacks of papers, and found these from last year. I need to get back to finding what I was looking for, but thought I'd share.

The "Born to be..." series will continue tomorrow!


Born to be... part 6

Obviously this series can't go on forever, but I still have a few left, and then some cartoon ideas that I've squirreled away that I still need to draw (and scan and post). 

I can't spend all my "free time" working on my blog, but I hope to be posting more regularly again, now that I have a scanner, decent and reliable internet connection, and a shorter commute. 


Born to be... part 5

Grief group tonight, perhaps I'll be more prepared this time.


Born to be... part 4

It's nice not to have to drive so far this morning to go to work!


Born to be... part 3

Last day before I start my new job - wish me luck!


Born to be... part 2

Busy weekend, more cartoons to come!


Born to be...

First in a series, be sure to check back for more!


Before Grief Group

Old cartoon for this evening, but I'm on my way out the door to co-facilitate a Grief Group.

The cartoon is more relevant to last night's meeting, but I'm sure I'll say more about that later.


Beginnings and Endings

I am somewhat nervous about what comes next - that's probably for another post. But I'm happy to be finished with my previous job as of this afternoon. I'm tempted to complain about all the things that bothered me up through even the last few weeks, but you know what?
I'm done.
