but cheer up...........


hello from lonely lone star state............

hey guys, I appreciate the comments on the CS Lewis post. I've had lingering thoughts on that one. My first response was damn how'd he become such a prophet about my life! All I could think was , yup all I do is spend time planting and tending to plants and flowers in my yard all Spring and Summer, and I love blowing some cash on my favorite Norse Projects clothing brand in Denmark, among other little things I find and purchase. oh, and yeah now I know why I had to get rid of that cat I was fostering last summer and fall (it went to a good home with a student from last fall semester).  I wasn't going to love that either! ha.... alas!
what hurts the most is the part that says the heart becomes stone cold hard unchangeable and irredeemable , man that's a wake up call.
 anyway! hello from Wichita Falls, TX. I've been here all weekend for a men's bible conference at a church campground. I came by myself.  long story but I've been enjoying doing all the sessions and small groups and meetings. It's been interesting for sure. I was in Kansas City last weekend.  been a busy semester but I have some more things to say that I've had thoughts on lately regarding my masculinity and sexuality and my relationship with my parents, and my job, and all that usual stuff. ha. back soon. happy weekend, summer's coming! :)

my life..................

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” - C.S. Lewis
