And did you feel it, in your heart, how it pertained to everything?
And have you too finally figured out what beauty is for?
And have you changed your life?

Upon further analysis, I’ve decided to spend some time using tumblr as my medium for blogging. I like the mixed media emphasis and think the format is fitting for the kinds of things I enjoy sharing. So… yeah.

This is where I will be for a while.

words with friends

January 3, 2010

i spent the day with south korea and boston and felt some relief in the middle of here.

i miss these girls and being able to share our experiences which so often mirror one another’s. sure we all may go about things… um, incredibly differently, but sometimes we tell the same story with different characters.

i rarely use this space these days, but as i see the long, archived list to my left i know it is good to occasionally visit the past and to presently share the now and also the hopes for the not yet. there are so many stories held here and i want to remember to add a few more this year. i have a feeling there will be a few for the books.

[or at least some for south korea and boston]

Another Round

January 1, 2010

God of the seasons, Lover of the ages, Master of every moment: You who are beyond time yet within all time. We return to you what you have given to us — the moments, the minutes, the hours, the days, the weeks, the months, and the year of 2009. Time has been gracious to us again, and we thank you for freely giving us these human bodies, these events, and these relationships. We have lived another year and we have died another year, and now you are granting us the beginnings of another. We now hand over to you the blessed year, 2009, with all that it gave us and all that it took from us, knowing that both are necessary, just like our breath. We trust you in both the givings and the takings, the inhalings and the exhalings. May every breath of 2010 be a breath of the Holy Spirit, joyfully received and joyfully returned, beginning with this one right now. Amen. /Richard Rohr
