Sometimes when you get some not so exciting news the best thing to do is find some pretty things.

1. This is what Friday night looks like when you are in school. It’s not a bad night for reading since it is wet and cold outside. 

2. Crossing fingers that whatever is causing the light on my dash to turn on isn’t to expensive to fix. Since I just paid tuition I’m not eager to dump a bunch of money into my car.

3. Hoping the day goes quickly and that I get a lot done while I’m working tomorrow. 

4. I just have been feeling out of the groove since school started. I need to figure out my routine for the fall.

5. I still need to get a haircut and have no idea when I’ll have time. Maybe I should just take a personal day next week. I still have a couple of vacation days to use by the end of the month.

Have a great weekend everyone.

For a New Beginning

For a New Beginning

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

Basically I have been blessed to be close to people who work in hiring and were very, very willing to pass along their knowledge and tips and since a lot of people I know on here seem mystified by these things, I will share my vast…

Dear Son of A Right-Winger,

Go back and read the opening sentences of your letter. Read them again. Then read the rest of your letter. Then read it again. Try to find a single instance where you referred to your dad as a human being, a person, or a man. There isn’t one. You’ve reduced your father — the person who created you — to a set of beliefs and political views and how it relates to you. And you don’t consider your dad a person of his own standing — he’s just “your dad.” You’ve also reduced yourself to a set of opposing views, and reduced your relationship with him to a fight between the two. The humanity has been reduced to nothingness and all that’s left in its place is an argument that can never really be won. And even if one side did win, it probably wouldn’t satisfy the deeper desire to be in a state of inflamed passionate conflict.

The world isn’t being destroyed by democrats or republicans, red or blue, liberal or conservative, religious or atheist — the world is being destroyed by one side believing the other side is destroying the world. The world is being hurt and damaged by one group of people believing they’re truly better people than the others who think differently. The world officially ends when we let our beliefs conquer love. We must not let this happen….

This spoke to me today. Would it be weird to reach out to her since she and I are both students at UW?

We saw one of these and a baby last week on a trail up the Gunflint Trail. Such a special place.

Grand Marais and Lake Superior. Even when it’s rainy and 57 degrees I still love it.

In northern MN. This is the st.louis river a few miles up from where it enters into lake superior. I’m so excited to spend the next 4 days in a place where I love. Found this cool spot because this is where my bf is mountain bike racing this weekend. happy weekend everyone!
