Back to This Blog

I started this blog, at least the concept of it and the first few posts, while I was sitting in the waiting room at the local oncological hospital. I would regularly take my mother-in-law for radiation therapy for months in 2009. Waiting rooms are the biggest time outs in life. Life goes on hold. It can be a good opportunity to read or write.

I’ve just gone deaf again. Another time out.

Today, I sent word to all my English students that I would be suspending classes for a while. I will continue to keep and build on my ministry schedule, but my teaching work is now on hold.

I plan to use this quiet time (I do expect it to be temporary) to get back to posting on this blog. I have several others which have taken center stage lately. This is my favorite blog, though. I look forward to regularly posting  here starting in February.


  1. What happened with your hearing? Is this related to the operation? Do you have any word from the docs about what's going on?

  2. You know, I think I might want a time out. Would I be allowed to sleep?

  3. Yes, Andy. I went deaf again. No, it is not related to the operation, as far as I can tell, that was several months ago. The random nature of my hearing loss is actually the reason I opted to have the surgery.

    This marks the fourth time that I can remember. 1987, 1997, 2008, and now 2012.
