It's the last day of June and I finished ONE book this month.  It's been a crazy month, what can I say?  Compared to how I used to be able to devour books, this was pathetic.  But considering how little time I have nowadays to read, I'm glad I got at least one in.  I'm even happier that I chose to read A.J.Jacob's The Year of Living Biblically.  For someone raised Catholic who ended up agnostic, I really enjoyed reading this book.  A.J. was his usual funny self, but it was also quite enlightening.  It made me want to look for the Super Book and Flying House cartoon shows that I used to watch as a kid and actually sit down and watch them with Audrey (and maybe even with Chris).  Despite my own difficulty with religion, teaching Audrey bible stories is now something I wouldn't mind doing.  After all, there are a lot of good things to learn from them.   Don't get me wrong-- I won't be joining any churches or anything like that any time soon (I have A LOT of therapy to go through before I get to THAT step).  If anything, I think I fall in with the group A.J. called the reverent agnostics.  "The basic idea is, whether or not there is a God, there's something important and beautiful about the idea of sacredness..."  I like that.     

Another thing I like-- Ted talks.  Here's the one A.J. did about his year of living biblically:


Hmmm... I think he looks better with the beard.
