February is coming to an end. My how the time flies.

I'm liking being in another country. It's...refreshing. I love having six roommates. I love seeing people and doing everything together every day. 

...I don't miss "home" 
...I don't miss California
Oh I miss people, and I miss friendships.

I just don't see myself living in Orange County for the rest of my life. Maybe I will, maybe that will be what God calls me to.

But I've got a strong sense it isn't.

saturday night...

Filling empty space.
Through time spent with 'friends'.
Previously planned excitement.
Eventual disappointment.
Where does opinion intersect concrete unity?

Don't speak what's on your mind.
For fear of rejection.
Hide emotion.
Fake smiles please fools.
When do acquaintances become qualified friendships?

Please don't miss me.
My life goes on.
My heart stays shut.
My walls close in.
Who determines the reality of heartfelt truth.

Let birds fly free.
Wings clipped bring pain.
Loose the rain upon unbelievers.
Run unhindered into seclusion.
Why fix something that's been broken over and over.

fields of the fallen...

hi world.

i've been busy lately, i apologize. i suppose it's good though, in a sense, to be too busy to sit down by myself at a computer and type away into the night, or morning for that matter. 

a lot's been going on. most of it good. a little sadness mixed in there as well.

i need to go right now though...i have a memorial service to go to.

my friend's grandpa was in a car accident yesterday. he suffered a stroke and has been in ICU for the past twenty-four hours; unconscious and unresponsive. i'm told he's not going to make it.

it's times like these....when.

words are never enough.

fact not fiction...

so much to do. so little time.

willy wonka's words never rang so true. 
one foot in front of the other. one step at a time.

life still couldn't be better.
