There’s nothing quite like going back to the place of your origins..
I’ve been away. The last time wrote on besaints was sometimes in August. I’d be posting on here on average 2-3 times a month. My intention was to write about holy things, but I’d end up – in some form or other – complaining about the elephant in my spiritual room, my soul: Twitter.
I didn’t know how to solve this problem. I saw Twitter as an addiction – in many ways, it still is – but something I’ve done these past several months since we’ve been on lockdown is draw close. Draw closer to friends. Speak to them, pray for them – more, and not just see them as a follower or a number or a like. Open up about my great desire to love and for friendship. Reveal this in Christ. Live & love for God & neighbor. Be not afraid.
I’ve tried doing this by creating a substack newsletter, Water to Wine, the name implying a space for me to explore seeing the holy in the everyday.
I’ve been writing there for almost 2 months straight, the sense of Twitter addiction subsiding because I’m speaking to my readers, friends I know..
Here’s a List of everything I’ve written on there.
For the rest of November, I’ll be writing a treatise on everyday holiness & mysticism – my try at #CatholicNaNoWriMo, my little Catolic version of #NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, where countless writers try to produce a work of some kind.
Please join me there and subscribe! I hope to be writing there for you, too! God bless.. 🙂
