From everything C.S. Lewis, to books on history, to my favorite English Premier League and Hoover Institute podcasts, I’ve logged more than a few hours on these and have met a much expanded world in the process. They serve as a portal to quiet, education and entertainment on planes and help me pass the daily workouts on my row machine.

This globe, which sits in my home study, serves as a reminder that I’m a spatial and temporal being, privileged to be in my particular place and time, and charged with stewarding each as best as I can.

I grew up playing soccer, starting in defence and then moving on to the forward left wing. I got introduced to rugby in college, and, similar to soccer, started in a more defensive position, and ended up as an attacking right winger. Not many things in sport beat the thrill of turning a defensive play to an offensive play, zooming past opposing players, with nothing but the hiss of the wind and the faint urgings of my teammates in my ears, and scoring, in either soccer or rugby. I get to enjoy that thrill in pickup games these days, and hope my kids can too one day.
