The Camp - Detox Week Review

Today I thought I'd change the pace. Rather than write this post into one core topic. I'm going back to the roots of what blogging is all about.

Blog: Web-Log. An online diary. 

I'd like to tell you about my week! 

Healthy Beginnings:


This week started with a fast. I went on a whole food juice only fast starting Sat 06/07 to Sat 06/14. I put fruits and veggies in my blender and drank the juice. That was my only food during this entire time. From sundown on Fri 06/06 to sunrise on Sun 06/15 I drank nothing but juice.

It was an amazing experience. By day 3 all my headaches were gone! I've had headaches for years! I've taken so many Tylenol and Ibuprofen that my blood chemistry was off. I haven't had a headache since. This goes to prove that it wasn't my bones that were the main culprit (I'd thought I needed a chiropractor), it was my body chemistry and nutrition.

My best shake/juice was: Beginner Green
Five Strawberries, Five Dates, Half an apple, Five Grapes. A whole handful of fresh spinach, add water and ice. Blend that all up. 
The goal is 50% spinach to 50% fruits in physical content. But if you need to start with less spinach and work up to that, do what it takes.  
Next take a smaller single serve blender cup, fill it 60-70% full and add half a banana. Blend that. It's a beginner green blend that doesn't make me gag! 

I had more energy than I've had in years, my default I started wanting to walk more and sit less. It was a great experience. I even lost 9 lbs and my pants fit better. Now comes the real test. Making healthier choices going forward.

My breakfast which was mostly sautee'd veggies, plus a small amount of eggs and turkey sausage, and yes, two small pancakes. I made the same amount I would have eaten before, but I ate 1/3 of what I would have eaten, and put the rest away for tomorrow. I also focused on eating mostly the veggies, and taking little bites of the protein and flour based items.

I've been much fuller faster today. Who needs a stomach staple, just go on a juice fast!

This fast has me wondering. If my body can get such radical benefits from making changes to my physical intake in one week... what about a spiritual detox? That could be interesting.

Camp Week

Both kids went to camp this week.

My oldest went to Camp: "Dry Gulch, U.S.A"! It was the longest he's been out of our collective parental sight in his life. It was a time for him to go and grow. He made his own decisions, had to remember to brush his teeth, etc. He had a blast! The most interesting moment is when we saw his pictures and he most appreciated the canoe ride... because it was peaceful and quite. Being the louder of the two kids, this was a truly special surprise. He found out how to enjoy peace and quite.

My youngest went to YMCA Day Camp. He still came home every night, but it's the first time he had to sleep in his room without his big brother there. Fortunately camp wore him out so he went straight to sleep each night. He got a chance to be a bit independent, decide which snacks he wanted, and enjoyed his new ninja turtle lunch box.

Both kids had a chance to experience and learn how to handle a bully. Both had the opportunity to reach out to someone else who was crying. Both had a chance to make some of their own decisions. Both had a chance to experience new things, without Mom and Dad there to tell them what to do, how to do it, or which choice to make. I guess they're growing up.

This made my think... how can I help facilitate that growth even more now that they're home. What can I do to be an even better father. What a great note to end a Father's Day post.

I hope you got something from hearing about my week.

Foundations Class #2 Levels of Change

Foundations Class #2Levels of ChangeBob HampClass can be seen on GatewayPeople.ComStarts with two stories...1. True Story. He had driven out to help his aunt who had a flat tire. He used a metric lug wrench on an American car, it wouldn't work so he forced it, stripping out all the lugs. He used the wrong tools to try to fix the problem and trying harder made it worse.

2. Potty Training Parable. You have an infant and shortly after you realize that the child needs his/her diaper changed. So you change it and it gets dirty again, and you change it, and it gets dirty again... Constant change but nothing changes. Then you get a higher order of change. Potty training. Once the child is potty trained you no longer have to change the messes anymore. A higher order of change has over-ridden the former things.
It is this type of change we are referring to with "Levels" of change. Not levels as in: When I pass 1st grade I will be in 2nd grade. It's not linear change, progressiv…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Reflection Paper: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

Reflections of Mere Christianity
This is a reflection paper of the text Mere Christianity (Lewis, 1952, 1980). The content was first delivered as radio broadcast material between 1942-1944 by Clive Staples “CS” Lewis. Lewis then gathered the materials and published them as three sperate works, later combining and editing the text that became Mere Christianity. With the mind of a scholar and the mouth of a layman, Lewis takes us through the various topics that affect our lives as Christians and provides practical break-downs of how we are to treat each topic, supplemented by a host of modern parallels and parables. He is careful not to take any position that is not laid solidly in the Word of God, leaving those positions that are controversial within the Church either without an opinion or a well-deserved analysis of each side. However, far from a dry treatment of theology, Lewis gives us a laugh through each turn as he cuts through the heady stuff for the “why behind” each discussion…
