So let's get started.. I read people's blogs, but never know what to write in mine. What to write .. how much to write.. blah blah blah. Let's start with the title of my blog. I call it "Space in between".. mostly in reference to space between my ears.. and whatever comes out of my mouth.
I work in healthcare chaplaincy or spiritual care. Most people don't even know what that is, so it hard to explain sometimes. I am like a counselor. I visit the patients in my areas, and provide "emotional and spirtual support" and man, do they have some doozies out there. Some days, the conversations are just airy.. you know about the weather, and other times, the conversation is debate about life and love. What gives that person meaning, big questions about fatalism, suffering, the meaning of it all, suffering, hope, and the Will of God. And people say they aren't religious! I think it is possible to be spiritually in tune, searching for God and your place in this Creation, but necessarily adhere to one religious tradition. Unfortunately, some people do not think about God and their lives until they are hit with some big trauma or operation where life and death are in the balance and then they start to think about their life... where they have been and where they are going. Through this, I have met some very beautiful souls.
And you never know what will come from one day to the next.
So my blog will be relate to my work and my working it all out as well as the joys and sorrows of just living my life. Hopefully this blog will not just get lost in cyberspace.
