It is so hard to build something, anything really. A house can take months to go up. A house with "delayed maintenance" can take years to whip into shape. Even a blog can lapse into disrepair without proper attention. To paraphrase Chesterton, you can never have an old white post; you need to paint it routinely to keep it white.
I've recently been missing my blog so I'm back to take care of all that delayed maintenance. I've cleared some old links and added some new ones: Fallible Blogma and Engaged Marriage should make the list after their excellent articles in Family Foundations.
I always wanted to be a janitor. Maintenance is in my blood. Hopefully, I will be able to maintain more than a blog. Like my patron, St. Francis of Assisi, I work towards fixing His Church.
