I am dying, dying, dying to post some lovely photos that I snuck in yesterday of my incredibly photogenic little sister, but hence! We don't have that fancy internet installed on our property yet. So, updates on Tennessee are coming soon. I just have to go park somewhere around here and steal someone's internet (or just go steal it from a friend again... you know who you are...), but until then, you'll all just have to live without.
Also, I'll be starting a new blog (hopefully) once this internet thing is all worked out. I am Californian to the core... who ever thought internet wasn't available at the snap of your fingers?
At the present, I am sitting in front of my grandmother's computer in Arkansas, missing home but enjoying a little adventure all by my lonesome. I drove down here today with Kristen and her little girls; her husband is filming down in Louisiana, and they're meeting at the halfway point for the weekend. She needed a traveling companion and a babysitter for a day. Since my grandparents live so conveniently close, it worked out well. I feel like chatting someone's ear off but my throat hurts from doing it for 6 hours in the car today... so I am resolved to type instead to whoever reads it. "I'm a lone, lorn creat'r..."
Tennessee if beautiful. I will admit. All you California inhabitating Californians that I left behind are really missing out on the scenery around here. It is lush and green, as opposed to dry and brown (nothing against Interstate 5 or anything
I have learned so much about life, other's around me, the Lord, and myself over the past two weeks; I could fill a book with it all. Making new discoveries, learning things of importance, pursuing the eternal matters, and seeking God have been a big thing around here lately... and I am enjoying life like never before. I don't really know why. Perhaps it is because life has started anew over here... everything is fresh and different, and it feels like being born into a new world, all over again. There have been so many different stages in our lives; milemarkers and very, very big changes. This is just another one of them. And... I am thankful for that. Strangely.
Forgive my rambling. Remember, I told you that I wanted to talk but didn't have the voice to. Perhaps I'll recover by the time I get home, and then you all will be the victim's of me and my crazy, excited self.
So anyway, I miss all of you, whoever you are, and I will reemerge into cyber space sometime this year. Till next time...
