Carrying on the Torch

Psalm 23, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

A new place with a new name

In any stage of life I feel like the duration is marked, defined as the progress or accomplishment a person makes with it. Almost as if it can only be deemed worthwhile and productive if they have left a piece of themselves behind, if there is continued growth long after the stage has passed.

Summertime

It's the season for family vacations, summer breaks and long weekends spent on the beach. Even though we haven't had a difficult winter this year, or even a particularly wet spring, the warmer temperatures are still accepted as though we've been longing for them since early September.
