I've Moved

I've moved to wordpress.

There's not any good reason for the move, blogger has been good to me... but I wanted a change. An update. Also, I like how I can have pages across the top of my new blog.

So please update your RSS feed, your subscription or your bookmark and come on over to Wordpress with me. (Or, you know, keep checking this site in vain and lose track of where I am and what I am doing. It's cool. I'll never find out.)


In case you missed it the first two times:

The following was quoted at church tonight by Dr. Leron Heath, whose teaching was amazing. (I highly recommend giving it a listen.) This is how the church needs to be everywhere, now. Standing up for what's true and right... Hitler may be dead and gone, but people are being murdered, sold, silenced, maimed, and God knows what else all over the world right this very minute with no one to stand up for them. Let's do something about this. Let's do something about it NOW.

"Being a lover of freedom, when the revolution came in Germany, I looked to the universities to defend it, knowing that they had always boasted of their devotion to the cause of truth; but, no, the universities immediately were silenced. Then I looked to the great editors of the newspapers whose flaming editorials in days gone by had proclaimed their love of freedom; but they, like the universities, were silenced in a few short weeks….
Only the Church stood squarely across the path of Hitler’s campaign for suppressing truth. I never had any special interest in the Church before, but now I feel a great affection and admiration because the Church alone has had the courage and persistence to stand for intellectual truth and moral freedom. I am forced thus to confess that what I once despised I now praise unreservedly."

- Albert Einstein, Time magazine, 23rd December, 1940 p. 38

Something's Gotta Give

I have gypsy blood. Or something.

I've been in Livermore since June... and I am so ready to leave. Not that I don't love my community here to pieces. I think having such a strong community behind me is what enables me to strike out into the world with confidence.

I have all these ideas, all these dreams. How do I choose what's next? How do I know what God's plan is? I am listening. Praying. Itching to go.

Seriously it's like I have bugs under my skin. That's how bad I want to go.

I want to go to India and take 400 million photographs. I want to hike through the jungle again (this time fearlessly). I want to teach English in Korea. I want to lay on the beach in Fiji. I want to eat myself silly in Thailand. I want to help the helpless, save the lost, bring light to the cause... and here I am, in one of the richest communities in the world, making lattes. Sigh.

The words on the bottom of the church bulletin constantly replay in my mind

What do I do now?

I love Google

Not only is Google the greatest thing since peanut butter (which is pretty freaking great), they made the best commercial I have ever seen. I totally cried when I saw this during the Super Bowl (not that it is hard to make me cry...)
