i. our church picnicked and we froze and ate french fries in cups and rigidly walked across bridges
and got our feet wet and danced on slated rock and broke branches and broke ice.
ii. last year today, i said goodbye to the kids. i haven't spoken to them since and of the things i regret, that is close to number one.
iii. and since the mood is particularly low at the moment, i'd like to just say that i feel like
a lot of the time, all we are really doing in blogging is quitting.
iv. however, i think that was a matter of me getting over myself and picking up my camera.
all the same, i miss a lot of people, and whether virtually or not, i want to hear from them again.
v. when it comes to what is tangible, i like my friends. i like them because they understand that what we have today will not last forever.
vi. and i realized that some people are nothing short of wonderful, and that happiness isn't something we should idolize,
and that stepping into sunshine from miles of shade is like fear lulling into peace,
and that joy is sourced from God, but He gives us several outlets to recognize for ourselves.
vii. i recognize various forms of food, i recognize music and i recognize words and i recognize helayna and i recognize you.
viii. today i have a lot of love. and love is not a feeling, it's a state of being. and feelings rise and fall (kind of like the stock market),
but there are no stakes here, because i know my love will never fail.
in other news, i shot helayna today, so i guess this doubles as a preview.
in related news, i have problems with people who think she's anything other than grand.
