Father Says…

I’ve been writing professionally (getting paid — not much, but getting paid) for almost 48 years. I’ve covered presidents and other political leaders, bishops and cardinals, professional athletes and everyday people. I’ve been to the White House, the National Cathedral, Yankee Stadium and the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA. And I never was intimidated.

But, as I sit here and put words down on paper — okay, characters on a screen — I am petrified.

What’s the difference?

Well, throughout my career, I always knew my audience. I knew what they wanted. I knew which issues would get a response. I knew my limits.

This time, however, I have no idea who will be reading this or, more important, what they want to read. But I am willing to step out in faith.

I’ve called this column … er, blog Father Says, a play on two facets of my complex life. My comments are always filtered through the lens of Judeo-Christian values and largely based on 40 years of marriage raising five children.

I have no idea what I will write about. I have thousands of ideas collected over the years, but sharing those ideas with strangers (who I hope will soon become friends!) is the challenge. That’s where you come in. I need feedback. I need suggestions. I need constructive criticism.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER:  Happiness is a choice.

    I have a Judeo-Christian view as well, so this is encouraging to me. It’s hard for me to view it from a different perspective, but I like the tone and think that it could also interest other readers and be encouraging.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
