Joni Mitchell is amazing.
This song is one of my favorite examples of poetry in music. There’s something so perfect about it.

Tonight’s reflection, the line:

"Love is a story told, to a friend,
it’s second-hand.”

A guy can’t be your Mr. Darcy if you suspect him to be your Mr. Darcy. That’s the whole point of Mr. Darcy!

This has been, and will be, the theme song for 2014.

"For me, the writing life doesn’t just happen when I sit at the writing desk. It is a life lived with a centering principle, and mine is this: that I will pay close attention to this world I find myself in. ‘My heart keeps open house,’ was the way the poet Theodore Roethke put it in a poem. And rendering in language what one sees through the opened windows and doors of that house is a way of bearing witness to the mystery of what it is to be alive in this world."

Julia Alvarez, quoted in 1998 in The Writer magazine, with the quotation republished in “Great Writing Tips from 125 Years of The Writer,” in the magazine’s April 2012 issue. (via apoetreflects)

Lord have mercy!

These far away attacks in exotic lands are often too easy for us to brush aside as we scroll through our internet pages.

This attack happened in Mpeketoni, a town in Kenya where I spent roughly 4 weeks in 2006. I know people from there. I helped build a church there. I worshiped with community, our Orthodox brothers and sisters. I formed relationships with our hotel staff, cooks, and drivers—who knows what their religious beliefs were? Various sects of Christianity live in this town alongside Muslims, and while there I never felt the need to be afraid.

This is real life, guys. These are real people. People you can talk to, and joke with. People you can sing and dance with. I pray my friends there are safe. I pray the people of Mpeketoni can have peace. I pray for the Lords mercy in this broken, broken world.

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center writes:
According to the BBC, Islamists have staged an attack killing at least 48 people in Mpeketoni, Kenya. The village is home to St. Panteleimon Orthodox Church which an OCMC mission team helped to build in 2006. Please keep the people of Mpeketoni in your prayers. We will post more info as we are able.

"Help me with this life that seems so treacherous, so disappointing."

Had a great time at The Night Owl in Fullerton tonight with @meekakitty and @rustyclanton. (Thanks for the picture Kaila!)

Thanks for not telling me world. I coulda been watching Mike Falzone around the corner instead of stepping on a snail which is just HORRIBLE.
