Stuff About Me That’s Utterly Fascinating

How I wish my profile pic looked.

If I were a hipster.
If I were a hipster.

Stuff clangs around in my head.

Why? Because I’m an INTJ.

This is a place to get my thoughts into the light of day where they can become uncluttered, critiqued, and developed into useful ideas.

I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.” – Flannery O’Connor.

Some might find the topics here a little eclectic for their tastes. Others might think, “Finally hope! I am not alone.”

And another thing!  I am not optimizing this blog for SEO or anything really.  I do that all day long in the real world for clients. This is the anti-that approach. Doing it on this site would give me tired-head. So I’m thinking you pretty much tripped and fell into this site like Alice.

Whatever my thoughts, I will strive to write with a tone of love and respect, even when critiquing,  so that I don’t become another cymbal clanging out meaningless communication in an already noisy world (I Corinthians 13) . Here is a bit more about some things that make my neurons fire more rapidly . . .

  1. Sure. I’d be happy to review it. I added it to my wish list. Thank you!

    Thanks for the post at my blog. The last time I lead “I Cannot Ignore” is April 2016!!! It’s one of my favorite songs, and I’m not ready to retire it yet. Great lyrics, a distinctive rhythm, and the only song I do with an Em9!

  3. Jordan,

    I heard you lead Fuel at a conference at Northwood many years ago. It really moved me, so I figured out the chords (best as I could) and have done it ever since. We help with an Operation Christmas Child relay center, and they have adopted Fuel as their theme song. We’ll be leading a group in singing it tomorrow. That song continues to resonate. Just wanted to say thanks.
