Palm Sunday, 2016
As I finished my post last week I noticed something I should have noticed years ago and now I feel a bit stupid. I have been adding all my posts, regardless of category, on one page when I had the capability to add new pages and separate my personal and political and other posts by page so people could read the post by category. I am deleting the old posts, starting with the oldest, and I will be a bit more intelligent in my postings. Home page on christophercolesite.wordpress.com will be the novel Entrance Examination and I will add other pages there as I finish novels and start posting them chapter by chapter; as well as short stories having their own page, although I won’t have too many short stories – they are nice to read but I do not like writing them, I have trouble finishing a story in the format of a short story, novels are better for me.
Today being Palm Sunday there was a special service at church, it is the 25th anniversary of the merger of Grace Church and St. Paul’s Church. I joined just a couple of years later. I did not walk around the block with most of the congregation as I am still sore from all the walking I did at the air show on the 12th. I don’t mind it, I enjoyed myself, but it will be nice when the soreness ends.
I am a delegate to the Libertarian Party National Convention for Arizona. I just have to figure out how to pay for attending the convention in Orlando Florida at the end of May. Maybe I’ll see if I can raise enough with crowdfunding. I’ll need probably $5,000 and unless I win enough from a lucky lottery ticket, I don’t have it. I am not sure if a crowdfunding project is even legal since attending a political convention is a political event and subject to a bunch of laws designed to keep incumbents in office.
As well as my writing, I should get some of the RPG miniatures I have painted. I did one miniature a couple of weeks ago and it was a horrible job. I’ll start with some of the simple figures such as wolves and small buildings and other simple figures and work my way up to people, where I will have a lot of detail work to do.
If you wish to do so, please pray for: Michael the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Kirk the Bishop for Arizona, Steve and the other clergy of Grace-St. Paul’s Episcopal Church; for those in the military especially those in combat zones, especially Ronald Berryhill.
