Coming Full Circle with Larry Carter

moving the podcast – interview from August 6, 2013
One of my favorite interviews!

~~~

I’ve often seen Larry in the same cyber places I was visiting, and I was regularly struck by what a nice guy he seemed to be and the good things he had to say. In our interview, Larry talked to me about his blogging missteps, searching for the right church and letting God shape his dreams. We also talked about how we sometimes head out on a search for self or faith or purpose, only to come around full circle, right back to the place we started from. And how, at forty-five, Larry is just now learning who he is.

"What I've realized is that I've got a story, and that's what I'm trying to tell. In bits and pieces, I'm trying to tell a little bit of my story." ~ Larry
“What I’ve realized is that I’ve got a story, and that’s what I’m trying to tell.
In bits and pieces, I’m trying to tell a little bit of my story.”

the Infinite Monkey speaks: on the things themselves

Random brilliance from across the blogosphere…

I think we all have trouble figuring out the difference between our ideas of things and the things themselves.

And I don’t think most people are willing to do what it takes to start looking for the difference between their ideas of someone and the someone themselves.

the Infinite Monkey speaks: on the inside

Random brilliance from across the blogosphere…

.

It doesn’t matter how old we are; we are never really grown up.  Bigger and older on the outside maybe.  But inside we are all little kids just trying to make sense of the world and trying to find where we fit in the scheme of things.

the Infinite Monkey speaks: on a dozen tangents

Random brilliance from across the blogosphere…

.

Her voice is Jersey baritone and it is all passion, words cut off only when age forces her to go retrieve them, and then it’s back to the story, to the dozen tangents she seems to need to follow out loud because we are listening. And if you don’t tell your stories, they die with you, gone.
