You are at the welcome page for the blog, For Lack of a Better Wor(l)d. I, Jim Andris, have been blogging on various platforms, iblog, WordPress, and Facebook since 2005, and this blog now combines all of these streams of commentary. Enough people have told me that I should publish a book of my short articles that I have done something even better! Here they all are, in one spot.

My themes record my reflections on and sometimes my struggles with family, politics, spirituality, environmental concerns, and sometimes even deeper philosophical issues. But there are occasional portraits of both the amazing and the ordinary events of everyday life.

I welcome both agreement and disagreement, but will immediately delete any comments that lack common civility. I hope you enjoy your stay, of whatever duration.

To read my posts starting with most recent, just click on the link “Blog” in the main menu. You can also search the blog, explore the several categories or the archives.
