Bendable Light (Where David Rodeback Writes)

David Rodeback

Welcome! I’m David Rodeback, and you’ve found my online digest of writings and thoughts. Here you’ll encounter themes of enduring consequence and themes of no discernible consequence. Please savor the wheat (if any is to be found), blow away the chaff (of which there is plenty), and enjoy both if you can. Thanks for reading.

Here are shortcuts to the sorts of writing you might have come here to read.

What these themes have in common is that they brighten my existence. Like Jerry Spinelli’s Stargirl, they are bendable light; they shine around the corners of my days. Perhaps something here will brighten your day too.

Looking for Something Else?

If you’re looking for my essays on politics and government, that’s a separate site, — unless you want information and commentary about elections and issues local to American Fork, Utah. In that case you want, where most of the writing comes in bursts during election seasons.

If you’re a long-time reader, you may wonder about my old blog at It’s still there, but it’s been dormant for years, and I’m gradually adapting and moving some of the highlights to my current sites, as appropriate.

If you’re looking for posts on digital marketing, which has been all or part of my day job for the last decade or so, there’s a separate site for that too. I call it Sensible Digital Marketing, but the URL is That’s not dot-com, dot-org, dot-net, or dot-US, but dot-marketing; strange new world, eh? It’s been a while since I posted there; I’ll be posting more soon.
