no darkness at all

"God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all." - 1 john 1:5

"For it is you who light my lamp; the Lord my God lightens my darkness." - psalm 18:28

"Rejoice not over me, O my enemy…when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me." -micah 7:8

for these the darkest days, when the sun is a good memory.

o canada

this is the land that he would show me, the water he called me out upon.

A camp in Canada was my home for a month this summer. Through days of lengthy light, thick bush, clear water and impossible circumstances, I learned a lot. I don't want to forget a thing: not the knack of opening certain doors around camp, the smell of a burning mosquito coil, the sandy dock, or the bonfire that smoldered all summer. I don't want anything to fade, even though some of it already feels like a dream, now, a week after returning south.

No matter what I do or where I go, the lake will be there, and it will be beautiful.

And no matter what, the God who led me to the North is with me yet.

this long summer

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand 
And Eternity in an hour.

- William Blake

I am thankful for family and friends, sunrises and sunsets, sleep and coffee, the back yard and the front step,  and the odd can of spray paint.

spring semester

I don't always remember what we laugh at; I simply remember that we laugh.

1. Humanely killing time at the library // 2. Warm sun after a long winter // 3. Persistence in a window that faces east. // 4. Training

I found a kodak disposable camera and carried it around, taking shots when they presented themselves over the past month or so.

Winter lends clarity.

Cold skies and thick snow, lagging engines and iced railroads. Winter is good for learning about patience and humility.
