It seems like an awful lot of work to blog lately. I mean, I have to open a browser window, and then type? And add pictures? This is crazy, and obviously too much for me lately.
However, one of my classes this semester is on Eastern Religions, and the instructor wants us to document our own spiritual journeys in a personal, meaningful way. Writing a blog about it was one of the main options, and I pretty much decided that since I 1) already have a blog, and 2) have a blog that is sort of close enough to that specific topic, I would kill two birds with one stone.
Poor birds. Cheep cheep.
Some thoughts on life lately, then. It's been moving too dang fast, and I haven't taken enough moments to stop and take everything in, just as it is right at that moment. We got to go out to one of Ammon's favorite places in the whole world on Saturday, and I was reminded that I am moving too fast. I'm not soaking it all in and appreciating the good that is all around us. It takes the perfect sunbeams that would make Thomas Kincaid weep in order to remind me that slowing down, even stopping isn't counter-productive, it's soul enriching.
Adventures add so much to life. Cajoling my mom into going stand-up paddle boarding with me was a highlight of my summer. Neither of us was very good at it, and it was a serious challenge, but we had a lot of fun, and did something we don't normally do.
When in doubt, the answer is always more donuts. Ammon mentioned donuts on Sunday when we were on our way to lunch, but then would not buy me any. After my half marathon yesterday, I bought some dang donuts. It was an outstanding decision.
Also, it's the first business day of the month, which means that it's rent time. Good thing I'm keeping this short and sweet (hence the donut picture). What are your current thoughts?
