Just read John Chapter 14 and it resonated with me in a totally different way than ever before, as if I'd never heard it.
This part particularly:
"And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate 8 to be with you always,
the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows it. But you know it, because it remains with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans;
I will come to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me, because I live and you will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you."
I have been feeling like an orphan lately. So I am going to read this frequently I think.

Anyone whose quotes are so brilliant must be read in entirety.
"Down on the lake rosy reflections of celestial vapor appeared, and I said, "God, I love you" and looked to the sky and really meant it. "I have fallen in love with you, God. Take care of us all, one way or the other." To the children and the innocent it's all the same." - Kerouac

If you fell, fell fell into the deep endless sea of feeling,
Felt the rhythmic, pulsing wash of intensity pull, pull, pull,
Til all you knew was the vastness of a legendary something,
Too meaningful, unique, beautiful, wholly wonderful,
To sully with a name, no -- this is: all there is, I can give,
Everything, ever felt, ever known, always wanted, never known;
Could you feel its stinging? Did you hear its ringing?
The waters rise and fall, rise and fall,
I'll never know if you cross them safely,
Your call, drowned by the crash, the unending din of waves,
Reach through, touch me, hold back the tide.

Sometimes there is nothing for it but to cry in a pretty place.

I want to be a wife and mom who writes books and probably teaches history in college. I think it's an important step for me to acknowledge, and not feel ashamed of, the first half of that though, because it's actually the most important part to me. I don't care anymore if other people don't respect that, or judge it. I was happiest when I was in law school, taking care of Christopher, and working out/dancing all the time. These are the things that keep me happy: being active intellectually and physically, having goals and achieving them, and taking care of children and a house. The only thing missing was a loving husband who respected me and whom I could love and respect.
It's good to know that is what I want :-)

your silence will probably not

|Robert Frost Poem - Bereft
Where had I heard this wind before
Change like this to a deeper roar?
What would it take my standing there for,
Holding open a restive door,
Looking down hill to a frothy shore?
Summer was past and day was past.
Somber clouds in the west were massed.
Out in the porch's sagging floor,
leaves got up in a coil and hissed,
Blindly struck at my knee and missed.
Something sinister in the tone
Told me my secret must be known:
Word I was in the house alone
Somehow must have gotten abroad,
Word I was in my life alone,
Word I had no one left but God.

Can you bottle effervescent optimism?
Would you drink it?

OOOOHHHHH I need to update about how Dr. Hill emailed me 18 times in one day (it was like IMing at one point; he was emailing me and I was emailing him at the same time!) and he told me I HAVE to go to an Ivy League and I won't be happy teaching anywhere else!!!!
This is important for me to write about....
But I'm tired of writing lol. Anyway, it's happy happy news. And I should write about Hill in general. He would be fun to write about.

|I think I'm gonna write tonight...
I was in the mood earlier. However at the moment I can't think of what I wanted to write. The messiness is distracting me. I'd better straighten up. Maybe I'll remember what I wanted to write about.

Can I make poetry for you,
And can you hold me in your hand,
See our future in the golden glow ahead,
Pull me into that cloud you hide thoughts,
I'll create lands you've never been,
And people your imagination.
You can't rid your mind of me,
For I'm too clever to leave,
And besides I like it here,
You're giving me life,
And drinking in beauty,
And I'm painting your future,
Can I weave your pretty dreams,
And can you ask me to always be,
See the dawn that comes from our embrace,
Hang your doubt with the past summer storms,
I'll harmonize the symphony you're writing,
You know that it's nothing you've had.
Let go of your sadness,
There's poetry being written here,
And a book I'm giving you,
Inserting the pen in your mouth,
You open it and you see
The dreams and the poetry
And the love - it is yours
The sun has risen.

In some ways it is so liberating to acknowledge anything in life as a choice!!!!
I've made so very few decisions in my life, and been so unhappy.... and yes, making decisions is scary, but the freedom it brings is positively blissful.
You mean I can make mistakes?
I can be wrong?
Then that means
I can also be happy
And I will be alright!

So I don't forget, last Sunday I ran 3.25 at around 12ish pace with Jenjen and the stroller on the Seaview Trail.
Monday I ran 3 miles?
Tuesday I ran 7 miles, avg 11 min/ml with stroller
Wednesday - 2 miles, 0.25 uphill intervals/with 0.25 flat 6.0 pace
Thursday - break
Friday - 5.5ml, 45 mins time (with stroller)
Saturday - ?
Sunday - break
Monday - 3 miles uphill most between 2-5 incline
I am starting to really prefer running outside to the treadmill, especially for the long distances. I am going to have to get some moisture-wicking running clothes... as it's imprudent to run in below freezing temperatures in shorts LOL.

When I get home from belly dancing, I should really write in here.
And secondly, I need to run earlier in the day, because I really need the endorphins during my day.... not so much at night.
