A sidenote

My posts have been sparser lately not because of a lack of time or material, but because of a lack of purpose.

‘Meaningless! Meaningless!'
says the Teacher.
'Utterly meaningless!
Everything is meaningless.' (Eccl.1:2/NIV)

Lately I have started many posts and then refrained from publishing them. They didn’t seem edifying enough: too depressing/cynical or just plain stupid. It seemed like every topic I started writing about was pointless.

I do this with speech, too: if I feel strongly about something, I wait a few days before verbalizing it; make sure it wasn’t just a certain mood. And many times when I return to it, it doesn’t seem worth the time.

This blog is about “Life in St.Petersburg,” but sometimes life is just life. Nothing glamorous to find here.

Blogging is not a vice for me, and I don’t feel a need to quit or fast, but I do stop to reevaluate the content sometimes.

Right now a lot of things are “pending.” I can’t put a check-mark or report about them just yet, but I intend to keep publishing updates here.

Stay tuned…


  1. Maybe you could post on your scripture reading for the day if something impressed you. I know what you mean about purpose. sometimes I post and feel blah about the post. I love reading your thoughts.
