The defense of my thesis went very well yesterday.  As well as I could have hoped.  It’s a satisfying feeling to know that what I’m saying makes sense and is breaking new ground.

I’m writing this in a hotel room in West Virginia.  I’m tired and ready to be home on the farm I’ve neglected for the past couple of days.

My seminary career is over and I’m pleased with how it ended.

I may have some important decisions to make in the near future about what’s next for my work and I’ll share more details on that later.

Meanwhile, in a few hours I hope to be home and breaking real ground.  That’s the most important work of all.
