stinking independence

November 11, 2008

i’m tired of independence and individualism. they are two concepts that have played out horribly for the most part in human existance… • they separated us from God in the garden • they block our interdependence and love for each other • they give us too high a view of our own achievements and worth […]

beach week blahs

June 9, 2008

losing expensive stuff

April 3, 2008

i hate it when i do something dumb especially when it costs money. i love my wireless broadband card pictured above because it means i can work on-line anywhere. those days are temporarily over because i lost it. i can replace it but it’s more money out of my pocket. arrrrgg! i retraced my steps, […]

my brain hurts

February 26, 2008

between conversations in class, discussion and lecture, all my reading and all my thinking, but sprinkle in the unknown of the future with what i will be doing with and from this degree and a healthy dose of the overwhelming nature of everything that is being addressed in the reading about culture, change, the way […]

too much news

January 14, 2008

in the midst of all this pain and suffering in the lives of so many people in town, here goes the news trying to get ratings and sell papers.  you gotta be kidding me with all of the details they are sharing and those willing to tell all or speculate! show some love, some care, […]

a little late night pick me up from scc!

January 4, 2008

another late night of insomnia last night and i got to thinking about life and the many things that worry and overwhelm me. [from time to time it can be a long and scary list] having sleep apnea and not sleeping well hasn’t helped matters one little bit either. as i was looking for a […]

quality relationships, quality days

November 7, 2007

monday was a tough day. a few close relationships [no, not dawn] got a bit strained. not to the breaking point, but just bumps in the road where they weren’t expected and that added to some stress that was already there.  not great timing when you’re trying to figure out how to speak to a […]
