The Future of this Blog

My father is a lifelong outdoorsman and that is a passion we have shared though for me like most good things it has just been in decline.

Not everything in this blog will ever be the kind of thing that makes the evening news on local television. Some of the posts will always be about my personal and family life.  My father just had a biopsy after a history of cancer and several surgeries. My grandfather Frank the first died of cancer. We have lived a life much marked by cancer. I do not know if he has had a recurrence of cancer or not.

Whether with family, in law or in ministry my father has lived a varied life full of unique moments which stand out in reputation and memory. I hope his remaining years are even more worthwhile.

  UPDATE: My Farther has had third cancer and been treated with surgery and chemotherapy. He has also had heart disease treated with two stents and is being treated for gout. After spending much of March, April and May of 2014 in and out of hospitals in the second week of May he seems to be recovering well at home and returning to his normal routine

He is not as young as he once was but there are a lot of memories I will always have of him.

So in this blog I will sometimes step away from the politics, science, history and law which informs so much of its content to muse about my anxieties regarding the health of a family member. Sooner or later the blog will stop functioning but while it is ongoing it will provide a record of my life and concerns in the midst of the world in which I live. Today it is Dad’s health and another day it will be something else.

This blog has recently leveled off in many ways after very significant decline over a long period of time. Perhaps it will continue to improve its performance and perhaps it will not. However, it will continue as an improving version of what it has been from the start.

I report on personal and family news a bit. Today my father had a biopsy that may very likely be cancer. There will be  a variety of personal and family events that make there way here. But this is largely about other themes that are explained in the permanent  pages of this blog.
