Utah Lake 2008 
(the night Eric proposed) 

As much as I am loving our warm texas winter weather, I do miss something about the pleasure of bundling up to be with good friends outside in the chilly air. It made the friendships all the sweeter.

I am in the process of trying to write about things close to my heart. I have been sitting in front of this computer screen for several hours and the longer I sit the more silly and inadequate my words are in comparison the all the marvelous and wonderful things I am trying to describe.

The Voice of the Sea

Highway 1 Roadtrip 2008

The voice of the sea is seductive;
never ceasing,
inviting the soul to wander for a spell in abysses of solitude.
To lose itself in mazes of inward contemplation.
The voice of the sea speaks to the soul.

For my own part, I am pleased enough with surfaces.
In fact, they alone seem to be of much importance.
Such things for example as the grasp of a child's hand in your own,
the flavor of an apple,
the embrace of a friend or lover,
the feel of music, the bark of a tree,
the abrasion of granite and sand,
the plunge of clear water into a pool,
the face of the wind,
what else is there,
what else do we need?

Edward Abbey
