Brain Dump

Oh how I need a bit of head space…

John O’Donohue writes beautiful poetry. His book of blessings is most definately the kind of book that needs read aloud.

I’m traveling a lot. Was in Edinburgh last weekend, in London during the week for a few days, in Galston this coming Monday, and back to London on Friday before flying to Kinshasa early Saturday morning. It’s fun, but tiring.

I work with amazing people. The other gap staff are incredible; there is such diversity and yet such a shared passion for justice. We are slowly getting to know each other better, and I am loving every minute of getting to know them.

London at night is beautiful. I took a walk along the river on Wednesday evening, snapped some pictures, listened to Duke Special. (Pictures coming soon)

I adore cities. I love the hustle and bustle, the endless possibilities.

Autumn is my favourite season. A little sunshine, yet crisp, cold days. I struggle to function well in the mornings, but I am slowly learning to appreciate my morning wanders to work. I’m excited about the changing season, not just physically but in my own heart.

That said, I miss the heat! You get used to hot climates very quickly.. I’m looking forward to a few weeks in the sun in DRC.

I’m dreaming about a trip to west coast USA in the summer. I’d love to see some cities I don’t remember very well (LA, San Francisco), some cities I have never been to (Portland, Seattle, maybe Vancover), and meet/hang out with some amazing bloggers/ blog friends/ inspiring artists/ musicians/ writers/ photographers who live on the west coast (Julie, Amos, Daley, Ryan & Holly).
