Happy Monday!

Hey, all!
I started writing the Young Chesterton Chronicles back in early 2003 when I was snowed in with my wonderful family in Vancouver, Washington….
My family….
Nah, it wasn’t that bad. But I just realized that I turned what will [hopefully!] be the final volume during…a week that we were all snowed in down here in the Dallas TX area where we now live. Almost exactly 20 years later! Oh, what a strange trip it’s been…
A few more days, and my podcast interview with J.R. Handley in his amazing show, Blasters and Blades will hit the airwaves. 🙂
Take care, folks…I’m a happy camper as of late . Life- it’s not perfect, but it’s a darned sight better than it was a decade ago.
Thank you, God. 🙂


At the end of my thousand year journey

To the land where the Red Sands Fly,

I saw a wood nub in the ground

And I stopped from passing by.

I dug and it became a cross

Buried deep so long ago,

I dug more and’t became a dome

To hold the faith I couldn’t show.

I dug and dug, and found a church

House of bread in house of gold

A faith I’d lost was finally found

And old was young and young was old.

An ancient wrong now put to right

I sit, and stare and cry

At wonder, romance, and love so fair

In the land where the Red Sands Fly
