something new

January 4, 2010

i haven’t written anything since July 22nd.  and it’s not that i haven’t been thinking, but that i’ve been telling myself that the thoughts i’ve been thinking have been too dangerous for public consumption.  That also means that they are too dangerous for private consumption as well.  Just because i can’t say things nicely or in a helpful way doesn’t mean that they need not be said.  Leslie has been the one person keeping my alive.

we’ve married off a room mate, gotten another awesome room mate, been to new york, found out were going to have a baby, all kinds of stuff that i would love to be telling stories about…. but all of the exciting things in life get muted out in my head by the things that won’t go away simply because i don’t say them out loud.

first thought – standing by a bunch of sheep doesnt make you a shepherd.

and then ben warren called me from kenya and i talked to him instead of to this. sorry.

    WHAT! A baby…that is WONDERFUL!!!!! I wish I was there to get excited and jump up and down with you two! I hope that wrestling with all these “thoughts” brings about some clarity and peacefulness. I miss you and all your big brotherly wisdom…hug from your GA sister!
