A pilgrim on a journey.

Picking a good blog name is always hard given the millions of aspiring bloggers and the lack of remaining witty and compelling names.  So I chose to use 'Plain Ease' as a reference from John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress".

Then Christian and Hopeful outwent them again, and went till they came at a delicate plain, called Ease, where they went with much content; but that plain was but narrow, so they were quickly got over it.

I love Pilgrim's Progress, it's such a great book.  The way Bunyan describes this 'delicate' and 'narrow' plain where they could experience Ease is so indicative of our lives sometimes.  The moments of true ease seem fleeting at times.  Yet we know as pilgrims our true ease won't come until journeys end.

So, why blog?  I am hoping this can be a mechanism to continue to engage in the great conversations of which I have become accustomed with my fellow pilgrims.  So please join in, opine and share your thoughts.
