Peanut Butter Evangelist

My friend Adam Hartel is a missionary in Norway. Apparently he has been spreading (pun intended) the good news of PB&J sandwiches along with the gospel!

Been Living Under a Rock?

Just in case you have been, there is a great little service called tinyurl.com. It's great if you want to IM or send someone a link that is way too long to type or might get cut up by your email program. Just go to tinyurl.com and paste in the long url and you'll get a tiny one back in return. I've even added a converter on my page here.

Creative Chaos

My friend (via blogging) Carlos Whittaker runs a weekly post called Creative Chaos. I thought I'd jump in.
"Where do you find your greatest creative outlet takes place?" was the question this week. For me I find that I need to get away from the hustle of LA life every now and then. One of the places where I go to re-create is at a Benedictine Monastery Called St. Andrew's Abby in Valyermo, CA. I find that getting away and spending a couple of days living the monastic life re-orients me and allows creativity to flow more freely. I find that my writing and my thinking are much more fluid and intense when I've been out in the desert with the brothers.
