When you read this post online or receive it in your inbox, I’ll be taking a much-needed vacation with my family. I’m going offline as much as possible and hopefully will come back refreshed. This week, the only words I bring to life are the ones I speak directly to my friends or family or whisper quietly to God in prayer. I won’t be writing at all, which is hard for a writer. But on the other end of my vacation, I hope I am ready again to work.
