    In your garden. Prefer lantana but star flowers and sea holly will do.

    I 'missed the boat' on this month's LM challenge. But I am now officially done with graduate school!!! So it was worth missing the boat.

    Are we ready to start figuring out what next month's theme will be? How about:

    - Things that are Not

    - What Happened on the Way to Work

    - It went bump in the night

    - The Great Misadventure

    - Lighting Never Strikes Twice

    - We Found Him in the Park [-- a nod to Dr. Seuss]

    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.

    Christian Apologetics. I studied theology and applied philosophy in the logical defense of the Christian faith.

    I absolutely loved what I studied and wish every Christian could have such an opportunity. But alas, life doesn't always afford such opportunities. That's why I want to bring what I've learned back to my church; already I've gained some teaching experience. My desire is to incorporate it into my writing. I have plans for a book--an academic study--related to naturalism and literature, and I was already writing fiction dealing with apologetic themes before I entered grad school. Because the problem of evil and the nature of free will have interested me greatly, I am considering going on to become an ethicist.

    Thank you for the congrats! It was a lot of hard work.

    Okay, count me in! My goal is to make five before the year is out.

    Suggest: Pleasure Planet

    Here's my suggestions for prompts:

    1. Baggage
    2. The First Time
    3. Sharing a Bed
    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we'll see
    No, I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
    Just as long as you stand by me.
