About The Upside

This blog is a workbench for crafting reflections, appreciation, encouragement, and challenge in those areas of life that most interest me, namely, literature, art, culture, self-development, writing, and leadership.   I welcome feedback.  Share your own experiences.  The ultimate end of The Upside is to give those who visit a superior and ennobling experience for their own individual journeys.

You have a great blog! I believe we all need to encourage one another especially since the writing journey tends to be a lonely one at times.

This is my first visit, courtesy of the Writing Sisters–and I’m really liking it here! Love the color spectrum at the top–beautiful and simple. And I very much enjoyed the C S Lewis post re originality. Thanks so much. God bless you abundantly.

Thank you for stopping by! The colors are quite striking on the front page. You might be interested in the link entitled “The Writing Life.” It’s the story of how Ralph McInerny (of Father Dowling fame) became a writer. A fantastic read. 🙂

Came across your blog while thinking about Dan Fogelberg. Really enjoyed the small piece you did concerning him. Saw him in the studio once in Pekin – amazing!

Thank you for stopping by! I’m a huge Dan Fogelberg fan and the story of his development as a pro has been inspiring indeed.

You might enjoy “Clement” on our CD, “Martyrs Prayers” – really inspired by that whole acoustic vibe. The singers are Michael Glen Bell, Phil Keaggy, Kemper Crabb (The Vigil) and Wayne Berry (Home At Last).
