The Journey Continues: Collected Essays on Life, Baseball, People, and Ideas 2014-2016 by Mark J. Ehlers offers entertaining delightful vignettes about baseball, fatherhood, theological ambiguity, the decline of political discourse, and life's many demands. Like his previous books, Eat Bananas and Follow Your Heart and Life Goes On, there is something here for everyone.
"If we could place time in a bottle, we would have less need for memories and less regret for wasted days.” So contends Mark J. Ehlers in The Journey Continues, a new collection of essays on life, baseball, people and ideas from the author that brought us Eat Bananas and Follow Your Heart and Life Goes On.
In The Journey Continues, Ehlers writes about ideas and people who inspire and intrigue him, reflects on the mystery of life, and struggles out-loud with the human quest for understanding. He writes about family, of love, loss, and missed conversations. And he writes about baseball as a game that “embodies the American spirit, the promise of childhood, and dreams of young boys in old men’s bodies."
