I have been putting off writing a paper. In blog land that must be a pretty common statement (Probably even common in tweet-ville too).
Today I make the first steps toward paper generation. I begin with the fingers rather than the brain. 'Ok, start OpenOffice Writer, name the new file'. Done--then I go do something else.
This paper is my final personal theology paper for my MDiv program. It should be freighted with significance, but by now I am just weary and beginning to write perfunctory papers. I am at least pleased that this final one is for a teacher who cares.
When I come back I can't find it, and have a moment of 'where did it go?' confusion. Then I see it. I named it My Theology, or as it shows mytheology. Hmmm, nice. I have invented a new word that is so different from what I originally wrote that it is unrecognizable. It seems to mean something special in its new incarnation.
Signs sometimes appear where least expected.
