Curious Can-Can: Lexicon


Happy Lexicon Thursday! Check out this excerpt (egg-zurrpt) of Chapter Three of my upcoming book about words about building up the home.

Kids are naturally curious. Which makes sense considering the divine notes playing their song. That curiosity is a potent elixir for the soul. It cuts through the fog.


Several years ago I stumbled across a curious book at a small ocean-side bookstore in the Outer Banks. Page after page of famous authors' quirky writing habits. It rocked me. I started settling into my own creative habits, like spending time in Scripture and prayer before writing a single word. Making exactly six cups of Breakfast Blend before the sun creeps up. Wearing a thrift store sports coat while creating.


Which made me think about how parents are like artists, quirky co-creators. Some of us are more curious than others, of course. Some moms paint with broad strokes, while some dads listen for the singular tuning of each one of their kids. And some parents think creativity is a waste of time.

Keep an ear out for my forthcoming A Lexicon of Awesome: spiritual thoughts on words under our roofs in spring 2020.
