Summer Camp Reflections/Musings

I've been working on my July in Review post the last few weeks (yes, weeks - I know, I'm pathetic) and I haven't been able to finish it. Everything about it is finished except for the last section. For the life of me I can't bring myself to summarize my two weeks away at camp.... Continue Reading →

Christmas Trees

Evergreens line the dusty path. Tall and full and stretching they stand, taking my eyes from the dirt that clouds around my feet and soils my white shoes. Caleb, with all the wisdom and wonder of seven years, exclaims that there’s Christmas trees all around. And I can’t help but smile a smile that soon... Continue Reading →

Mohicans and Metaphor

There are a handful of moments in books and movies that strike my heart, mind, and sympathies unflinchingly. Generally these are moments characterized by some sort of passionate overflow of emotion or thought.

People talk about being bored in the... Continue Reading →

Some More Reflections

Alrighty, another rather contemplative post. But as I've been winding down from all the stress of the school year, I've had the time and peace of mind to look back at myself and decipher the strange not-myselfness that I felt for the bulk of the year. The other night, when talking with my very close... Continue Reading →

Writing, Release, and Summer

Summer in all its chlorine scented, air conditioned, peach hued, iced coffee glory is finally here. Finally. I almost don't believe it. This was my first afternoon without obligations and I kept thinking to myself, 'don't I have algebra homework?' The next three months will pass quickly, they always do, but I welcome their release.... Continue Reading →
