Weekly Web Wanderings: EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK

It’s that special time of the week where I condense the very best of my world wide web wanderings into a single post. As always, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for all my wonderful web wanderings as they occur throughout the week. Onward to the WWW! NEWS No, this isn’t a report on some run-off election or dignitary conclave or something. FULL HOUSE IS COMING BACK. And get this: they’re calling the Netflix spinoff FULLER HOUSE. Because the Tanners are, like, doing the communal living […]

Racism & Homophobia & the Rise of Angsty Christians, Part 1

I’ve been burdened by this post for a while. I’ve used a mammoth road trip and a new start in Charlotte as excuses not to write it. Not to talk about it. All of it. I’m going to try today with the first of a two-part’er. The news is usually depressing, and thus I usually don’t comment on the news. Every now and then, though, I feel stirred to speak. I usually say something moderate that either resonates with fellow peacemakers or further […]

My #RunningTo Road Trip Playlist

I spent 282 days on the road in a car without working speakers. Some might have called my predicament tragic. Many folks offered their disbelieving condolences over the course of 26,301 miles. But my speakerlessness had been nothing new. My Mitsy actually hasn’t had operable speakers since 2011. While initially tragic, my car’s thundering silence grew on me. Silence is awesome. You can talk to God, you can talk to yourself, and you can pontificate on all life’s mysteries while the road’s snaking […]

I Wanna Be Nasty Like an Inchworm

It is spring, and Charlotte has grown infested with inchworms. It’s like Georgia with ladybugs, only this is worse. Much, much worse. Oh, what’s that? You think inchworms are so cute? The adorable way they arch-and-stretch, arch-and-stretch, arch-and-stretch? You think inchworms are the BEST little wormies? Even better than Wormies by Jana? Oh no, dear reader; you are wrong. You are so wrong. Inchworms are THE worst. Everyday I walk out my door or across the yard or into my car, and I encounter an inchworm dangling from an invisible thread […]

My 11 Most Memorable States & Provinces of #RunningTo

I saw 48 states and 6 Canadian provinces during my 282 days of #RunningTo. I could tell you at least one distinct moment from each state and province visited, though certain ones were more diverse and memorable than others. And so . . . I compiled this controversial list. To be clear, this top-11 list is not my “favorite” states and provinces. I don’t know how I’d craft such an impossible list. But over the course of my 26,000+ miles on the road, these are […]

Weekly Web Wanderings: Email in REAL LIFE

It’s that special time of the week where I condense the very best of my world wide web wanderings into a single post. As always, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for all my wonderful web wanderings as they occur throughout the week. Onward to the WWW! FUNNY Tripp & Tyler’s latest creation of perfection is “Email in Real Life.” My personal favorite is the “reply all” mishap, though the extended signature is pretty great too. It’s a sequel to their “Conference […]

WWBGD: What Would Bob Goff Do?

Bob Goff is one of my heroes. I first heard about Bob in a Donald Miller book, and then he wrote a book himself. After reading Love Does, I got the sense that Bob Goff does something epic and whimsical every single day. He rides an Indian elephant to work or makes a balloon elephant for a child or rides an Indian elephant with a child while making a balloon elephant for said child on the way to work. In recent years I’ve […]

Weekly Web Wanderings: Bob Barker Returns!

It’s that special time of the week where I condense the very best of my world wide web wanderings into a single post. As always, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for all my wonderful web wanderings as they occur throughout the week. Onward to the WWW! APRIL FOOL’S Bob Barker finally returned to the greatest game show of all-time! He only hosted the first pricing game before Drew Carey emerged, but the whole thing was just perfect. APRIL FOOL’S AGAIN I was only […]
