For more than a year, I’ve served as curator and editor for Selah Center‘s blog “Here & Now.” For the next six weeks until Easter, I’ll be working full time there curating and editing that blog for a special series “Here & Now, A Contemplative’s Journey.” So while you won’t necessarily be hearing from me as The Write Stuff you can ponder and enjoy this contemplative blog. I hope you enjoy the Here & Now blog on WordPress.
