Flannery O’Connor, Annie Dillard, and David James Duncan walk into a bar…

…to have a drink with Pierre Teilhard.

In 2001-02 I studied Theology at Regent College. There I took a literature course from Dr. Loren Wilkinson. His syllabus listed about a dozen books, including: Everything That Rises Must Converge, For the Time Being, and The Brothers K.

Having just now read Duncan’s essay “Assailed: Improvisations in the Key of Cosmology” in Where I’d Rather Go: More Essays Beyond the Comfort Zone by Susan Olding et al, I’m more convinced than ever that Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was onto It.

Funny because I wrote a paper about this back at Regent. And, while it’s probably embarrassingly bad, I still have it here.

The Staves @ The Tractor =(

The Staves are playing a sold out show at The Tractor Tavern on Feb 16 and I don’t have tickets. I’m consoling myself by purchasing more of their music on Amazon. If you have a shot at one of their tour dates, act now: http://www.thestaves.com/splash/tour2017

default routes

When you want to connect a not-Internet-connected router via ethernet to your Ubuntu laptop, but still prefer your laptop’s Wi-Fi connection for Internet routes, you can delete the default route for the ethernet connection:

$ /sbin/ip route | awk '/default/ { print $3 }'
$ sudo route del default gw 192.168.100.1

^^ where the 192 address is the gw for the ethernet connection

There may be better ways to do this, such as using ifmetric, but the above works for me.
