What is this?

I intend to use this space to talk about my feelings on religion, spirituality, etc.  I was raised in a non-religious, non-spiritual home, but have always considered myself a rather spiritual person.  I started attending a Unitarian Universalist church in college, but switched to attending a Quaker Meeting (on a very, very irregular basis) by the end of my studies.  Though I have not attended a meeting on a regular basis, due to my moving around so much, it has very much resonated with me.  I am overseas right now, and upon my return to the US, I intend to further explore this aspect of my life more directly, but for now, I’d just like to use this space as somewhat of a “brain dump” on the subject of me and spirituality, etc.

Oh, and the title of the blog is from a joke that a friend of mine made once, that the bumpersticker for Quakers should be:  “Quakerism:  Shut Up and Listen”.   Given my propensity to talk my head off, I often have to tell myself this, and so I found it funny and appropriate.
