Update 8-18-17

We haven’t had an update recently, so let me bring you up to speed.

First and foremost, I am on vacation next week, so there will be no regularly scheduled posts. I may share things to Facebook as I see them, but Heather and I are taking a hiking trip, so don’t count on too much. If you’re interested in seeing nice hiking pictures, you have better odds. We will be back to our regular schedule the following week, beginning on August 28, so don’t wander too far.

In conjunction with that vacation, Heather and I will be celebrating our twelfth wedding anniversary on Sunday, August 20. Hard to believe that someone has put up with me for that long without getting paid for it. I’m kidding, of course, but it has been a great twelve years and probably far more than either of us expected when we first started talking. Did I ever tell you that our first date wasn’t even an official date, but ended up continuing for almost three whole days? We might not have known it at the time, but I’d say the future was pretty well set from that point on. There will not be the usual anniversary post because I’ll be driving to the aforementioned hiking trip that day.

We have successfully moved from north Phoenix to Gilbert. That is still part of the greater Phoenix metro area, for those who don’t know, but is further out on the edges and about an hour’s drive from where we were before. It’s a little more small town, in comparison to Phoenix, though certainly not in comparison to anywhere I lived growing up. There are farms nearby, so there is certainly some familiarity. All in all, it’s been a nice move, though the commute can be … interesting.

The only other news of note right now is probably the biggest announcement we have. The court date has been set at September 7 for our adoption case. After just over two years, we are almost fully official. It has been a long journey, and not always fun if I’m being perfectly honest, but it has certainly been worth it.

Aside from the personal updates, we have all seen the divisions and upset in the world lately. Many of them are far more complex than we can possibly address in a simple update so I will just leave it do what you can to help. Be good, be kind, and look for ways that you can make the world better. Every little bit counts, and counting up the little bits is how the big bits come into being.

Take care, and Namaste.

Fear Prevents Life

We often hide from what makes us afraid, believing that doing so will keep us safe, but life is not meant to be safe. Life is meant to be experienced, and that includes risk. You cannot truly live without taking risk, so come out of hiding. Put fear behind you, and live a life worth remembering.

A Lot Of Problems

Hate is one of the more powerful forces in the universe, but for all the wrong reasons and in all the wrong directions. Hate doesn't build. Hate doesn't lead to growth. Hate doesn't make things better. Like all powerful forces, hate can do many things, but they all lead to ruin, and ruin of self most of all. It's a poison that destroys all it touches, and should always be avoided.

Kiss The Earth

First do no harm. Take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints. Walk as if your feet are kissing the earth. All wonderful ways of saying the same thing, if you think about it.
