I'm starting a blog. Go figure. Soon I'm planning to leave on an adventure and perhaps some of my family, friends, parishioners, fans & non-fans (un-fans?) might have an interest in my progress.
The plan is to leave the parish on September 5, 2010, after the morning Masses and drive to St. Louis, Missouri, to participate in a program to lose weight and tackle some of my health issues.
It's a program of the St. Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute. http://www.slbmi.com/ They'll evaluate me and tailor the program to meet my individual needs -- at that point, perhaps I'll know how long I'll be away.
