Henry David Thoreau
“I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.”
― Henry David ThoreauWalden, or Life in the Woods

Sometimes, I cry. 

I cry because I feel like somehow, someway, I have wronged the world. 

 I feel like I'm being punished. 

So I try to love. I try to serve. I try my best to make others feel important.

Sometimes I wish I could dream forever, because when I dream, I sometimes wake up laughing.

When I can't sing

I play 6 hours of classical music everyday.

Naturally, I don't always enjoy listening to it.

But tonight, and some nights, and many more nights to come, I felt like listening to classical music.

Sometimes, all you want to hear and scream is classical music because lyrics aren't what you need.

Underwater film


Thank you Ashley and Amy for inviting me to come swimming, and to Andy for great underwater photo skills.

Today I wrote a lot of letters to missionaries and friends out of the country.

 I guess I can get pretty crafty when it comes to paper and stationery, so I made envelopes and drew funny pictures on each of them.


I can't wait to send them tomorrow.  There's always a bit of satisfaction when you send out a letter and get one back.
