Wisdom from Spongebob??
I guess certain people I know are on to something. Because the following was uttered by Spongebob. Wow. Love is handing someone a gun and letting it point to your head, and believing [s]he won’t pull the trigger. Yup, sounds about right.
Wow, I read that book so long ago. I think I read it twice, too. Now I’m recognizing more of its significance. I just discovered the book report I wrote on it senior year of high school. I have to say… reflecting where I was faith-wise at that time in my life… it probably caused me to look for purpose. Let’s share an excerpt from this report. Meursault is a strange man. He seems to be and feels...

Wow. I love this lots. I would just like that belt alone! The possibilities!
A sabbatical of sorts
Nothing that you have not given away will ever be really yours. - C. S. Lewis For the past few weeks, I’ve been attending an Episcopal church. This is new to me. It’s liturgical, more akin to something a bit more structured (which I must say I’m becoming a fan of). Anyway, been looking to do a bit more personal study, gain some insight, refresh myself. Addressed something...
So I wrote this on July 13, 2003 (one of the few entries I dated). Not entirely sure who the subject of it was… but I probably could guess. It’s interesting… What’s maturity? By your definition through habitual behavior, I can only guess you consider it being too serious for your own good. You only say things that appear overtly intelligent as to go over everyone...
La de da.
Balancing optimism and joy with sobering reality. How on earth is that accomplished? So much to enjoy and savor in this world, yet simultaneously, when standing face to face with the awareness that there’s a ton of awful crap going on, what does one do? Certainly not turn a blind eye. And the way I see it, in the vastness of this planet and the expanse of humanity, how could we ever only...
So how on earth did the “entertainment industry” as we know it come about? When I think about it, it seems just crazy… elevating people to superstar/idol status because of their individual talents. And while I do believe everyone has their personal talents, and they should be used, honed, practiced, and shared with others, how did it become what it is now? Sheer insanity. We look...
Want some more poetry? Of course you do. Am I perfectly justified in seeking vindication? Is it healthy to despise you this way? Could you take the time to answer these questions? I don’t expect much, just a straightforward response The curiosity is slowing softening me I was supposed to hold on to thick skin And ignore the fact that you were ignoring me I need not depend on your approval...
An Algebraic Disaster
So… I used to write some freeform poetry back in the day… (i.e., in high school). It certainly was interesting. Because I love math, I wanted to write a poem with a bunch of math references… and I was quite pleased with the results. So I guess I wrote this 7 years ago or more, now I’m sharing it with you. Its title is the title of this post. If I am rejected just a few...
I cannot fully express what I’m feeling right now. To have received a call from lovely 16-year-old girl simply because she thought of me since she passed by the street I live on… (well, lived on, I assume it was my parents). It’s a little miracle like that to remind me I am never really alone at all. To remind me that God put me where I needed to be to make a difference in...
I told my friend Jill this: Experiencing the fullness of my insanity is like looking into the sun directly. You just don’t do it. It blinds you. And that is how I see myself.

You have to take a moment to stop to look at the absurdities of life and nature. :P Click through and read!
A reading recommendation.
Possibly one of my favorite books of all time is The Little Prince. Forget for a second that it is considered a children’s book… it’s contains such immense wisdom. Far more than most so-called “children’s books”. It’s rather brief, so it’s an easy read, but TOTALLY worthwhile. And I own this book in French, though I have not attempted to read it in...
A glimpse into the past.
I am such a bundle of nerves. I am at odds with myself so much of the time, I am amazed to survive another day! Moving on… I thought it would be most entertaining to post something from an old journal, that would allow you to look even further into my psyche. Oh hooray! Now you can also descend into my madness. The journal I found is from 2004. I was at the height of my bitterness that...

I can tell I’ll be reading more articles from this magazine… enjoy.
A woman uses her intelligence to find reasons to support her intuition. - G. K. Chesterton Yet more proof I need to read Chesterton. Probably will start with Orthodoxy. So much I want to read! But as my dad wisely wrote on a page in a book he gave me as a gift: “Discovery and adventure go together. They are accomplished in the world and in the mind!” Indeed.
The beginning of something interesting...
Between all the thoughts that run through my mind, the things that entertain and/or amuse me, the interest I have in fashion, the desire I have to sing at all times… I figured now was as good a time as any to start a blog. I rarely indulge in completely frivolous conversation. I like to have a sense of humor about me, but chances are if you find yourself talking with me, something of depth...
