Update: Pause by Michael Nichols

As you guys know, I've been testing the waters with regular posts, specifically "Entering Rest" and "Renewed Life" which sort of go hand-in-hand with each other. It's been fun, and it's also been brief, but I'm going to put those two on [see title of this post] for a bit. The only reason is that it's difficult and frankly droll to write about basically the same thing week after week after week.

So what's going to happen is you'll see these titles [or rather not see them] disappear from the routine, but you'll still be able to access them from the "Categories" hierarchy widget on this site's right sidebar. This way, if you enjoyed them, you can revisit them.

As a result, this change will also allow me to devote more time and thought and genuineness into the "Unhindered" series. It's not that these regular articles haven't been genuine or thought-through, but the way that life ebbs and flows-- well, it's the furthest thing from rigid, and it can't really be put into a box. Sometimes to rest, you need to just rest, and sometimes to renew your life, you just have to renew it. You just have to choose, and that is a constant. Anything is a variable, subject to change, not the foundation for life.

Thanks, as always, for reading. God bless, and I'll see you soon. Happy writing. :)

Update: The Regular and the Random by Michael Nichols

Over the past couple of weeks, I've published a few issues of "Entering Rest" and "Renewed Life" as a part of a refreshed, more regular version of this site. It's been an interesting experience, stretching the limits of my mind. Just having my feet in the water has been a needed and welcome part of becoming a better writer/thinker/person.

That having been said, I've put my normal posts on hold while I get used to this new found routine. I've been drafting like mad, but just haven't been publishing them. The simple reason is that I'm not sure how that fits into this new regularity -- whether I should give my other articles the same treatment or just let them flow as they form, like I've always done.

So, here's what I'm going to do about that. Almost like a "season" for a TV show, I'm going to post 10-11 articles, cap it off with an issue of "Change and Constancy," then break for a few weeks and start again. That way, you get the regularity without the rigidity. I plan to resume with the first issue of "Unhindered" next week.

Boom. There you have it. Thanks for reading, guys. I'll see you soon. :)
