Recent Places

[Got this idea from Jim, thanks!]

Some things I’m reading / doing / loving today:

“shed
the hidden secrets of
your troubled journey”

From “Teach Me How To See” by Andrew Jones

Still loving Ryan’s (and friends’) ideas about Christmas.

Daley Hake’s photography…. my word can I please be as talented as you?

“I would rather write her a song, because songs don’t wait to resolve. Stories ask for endings, but songs are brave things, bold enough to sing when all they know is darkness.”

The To Write Love On Her Arms story

“God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house… God is in the silence of a mother who has infected her child with a virus that will end both their lives… God is in the cries heard under the rubble of war… God is in the debris of wasted opportunity and lives, and God is with us if we are with them.”

Bono
