This is my space to jot down thoughts.

Born in Texas. Lived in Oregon, Taiwan, then Oregon again. Studied at the University of Oregon. 

I edit and write books.


The value of the myth is that it takes all the things we know and restores to them the rich significance which has been hidden by ‘the veil of familiarity’. The child enjoys his cold meat (otherwise dull to him) by pretending it is buffalo, just killed with his own bow and arrow. And the child is wise. The real meat comes back to him more savoury for having been dipped in a story; you might say that only then is it the real meat. If you are tired of the real landscape, look at it in a mirror. By putting bread, gold, horse, apple, or the very roads into a myth, we do not retreat from reality: we rediscover it.
— C.S. Lewis, On Stories: And Other Essays on Literature

In seeing truth played out in stories, we get to experience it. These dusty truths take on a new weight for us they never could have taken before. Good stories are theology made flesh.

We are in constant need for truth, but far too often our eyes are blinded by the veil of familiarity. It's the same old same old. This is why we need good stories, to take us behind the veil and bring us back into the light.

This blog is an exploration into such stories.
