  • Our practical desires from the Lord

    What are our desires from the Lord? I will never forget the time that I was in Goa, on the west coast of India. I had taken a train there which is a story in itself.

    Those who experience creative flow are remarkable. Something that writers would call the opposite of "writers block".
