Living with ADHD: Hyperfocus

Hyperfocus Before I go any further, I need to introduce the term “hyperfocus.” Kathleen Nadeau explains this phenomenon in her book, Adventures in Fast Forward. “In actuality, ADD is not a ‘deficit’ of attention, but a disorder in which individuals have much less control over their responses to stimuli,” writes Nadeau. They are unable to regulate their […]

Order and Chaos My mom was one of those women.  At one point she had five kids from diapers to a teenager and all of the duties of a pastor’s wife. The house was always at least orderly, if not spotless. She could walk into a room, see something out of place or in need […]

An Old Friend

This craggy dead tree sits between the James River and the Colonial Parkway.  Randy and I have photographed it many times.  It is that out of place thing that grabs your attention every time.  Surrounded by living things, the remains of this tree have sat for years.  Once it was as lush as the other […]

Living with ADHD: Cooking with ADHD

Forget graphic arts. Forget web design. I think I may have found my calling in life. I think I need to write a cookbook for people with ADHD … “Cooking with ADHD: Help for the Domestically Challenged.” I like to cook… sometimes.

Good Friday on Monday

This is a follow-up on my last post “Good Friday”. I referenced a podcast by Brian Zahnd call “A Beautiful Gospel.” I found this video today that has part of that message. It’s short (approx 15 mins.).

Good Friday

It’s hard to know exactly where to start this.  It’s hard because it is a goal of mine to keep my posts as short as possible.  This is a story that is hard to condense, but I will try. I have come to believe that I have believed many subtle errors about God.  Subtle.  Subtle […]

53.3 Great and Wonderful Things About Working At Home

I’m feeling very uninspired this week.  While there are several inspirational fragments floating around in my brain, I am unable to coax any of them out and make a blog out of them yet.  But there is always something to talk about, and while I’m sitting here at my desk, I thought I’d just share […]
