In my last post, I was tough on the President––I hope I was fair. From my perspective, nothing good can come from his arrogance. I’m going to continue this theme of hubris (excessive pride) and humility in today’s post as it relates to my life. As a prelude, you might want to read the earlier one here.
Please understand, one should never excuse the failings of pride but it’s a significant aspect of the human condition. I, for one, can empathize with those who succumb to it. And don’t we all to some degree?
As a non-theologian who’s trying to build daily on his body of Catholic knowledge, I realized early in my blogging life that my value-add to the Christian community would be lessons learned from my experiences in business, the military and in life. I’ve been blessed with a lot of them.
They’re also a prominent part of my book A Leaf on Water: An Atheist’s Fall to Grace, which hopefully won’t be published posthumously. Not that I’m sick or dying but getting a book published is like sculpting Jell-O with a feather. As a nobody––a not someone––it takes forever unless I happen to be piggybacking on some nefarious, salacious conduct in my past with a famous person.
I wonder if ____________ would count?
