I know I haven’t done the greatest job lately of coming up with interesting, thoughtful things to post, but I guess I’ve been too busy thinking and trying to sort things out, and I’m actually still in the midst of clearing the path to be able to write about it. I sometimes think I think too much, which is obviously an indicator of the truthfulness of that statement. When metacognition kicks in and you start thinking about thinking, you know you either: 1. have too much time in your hands, or 2. are seriously in danger of becoming an obsessive compulsive person, and in my case I think it’s a little bit of both.
I’m kind of stuck in my dissertation work. What I want to do seems like a bigger task than the one I actually have time for (I eventually need to finish this so I can get on with my professional life), so I’m trying really hard to narrow it down and figure out what particular aspect of it would be of interest, both to me and the field of children’s spirituality. My sponsor has not turned out to be the greatest help and I’m having second thoughts about having asked her to work with me. I’m feeling a bit on my own on this one, and I know that’s not how it should be, or is it? Argh! I’m not only confused, but I’m losing my patience here, help! I need enlightenment!
